"The Gigantic World of Microfungi"
Even though you can't see them, microscopic fungi play a big part in our daily lives. Learn about the wonderful hidden world of microfungi. Discover the beauty of these tiny organisms that surround us (they're in the air, soil, plants, our homes - no matter how clean). An overview of various microfungi, their uses, and their ecology will be presented.
Julia Kerrigan is an Associate Professor of Mycology at Clemson University and cofounder and president of the South Carolina Upstate Mycological Society. Her research interests focus on fungal ecology, especially the basic biology of fungi and their interactions with other organisms.
As always, try to come around 6:15 to meet, greet, and share in some snacks!
MCG features monthly meetings each year between February and November on a variety of fungi-related topics. To view some of our previous meetings go HERE.
