Fungal Diversity in Tropical Ecosystems

11:00 a.m. Pacific time on Wednesday, May 17 (that’s 7:00 p.m. London time)

This webinar, Fungal Diversity in Tropical Ecosystems, will highlight Kennan Mighell’s research on mushroom diversity in some of our planet’s remote rainforests. Kennan will take us on a journey deep into the heart of the South American and the African wilderness, to a landscape bursting with diverse and colorful mushrooms, including many undescribed or long-forgotten species. 

Working closely with local indigenous people, Kennan and a team of researchers and guides are documenting hundreds of fungal types, many known only in these remote and spectacularly unique ecosystems. Kennan will introduce us to a few of the newest Amanita species to be documented by modern science. He will also discuss the dynamics of extended wilderness research expeditions and share stories and insights from his experiences with Earth's most ancient intact ecosystems and stunning cultures.

The webinar will be followed by a Q&A with Kennan, Dr. Elaine, Dr. Cobb, and Laura Campos.
