Alison Pouliot Book Launch – The Allure of Fungi
February 20 @ 6:00 pmFree
Although relatively little known, fungi provide the links between the terrestrial organisms and ecosystems that underpin our functioning planet.
The Allure of Fungi presents fungi through multiple perspectives – those of mycologists and ecologists, foragers and forayers, naturalists and farmers, aesthetes and artists, philosophers and Traditional Owners. It explores how a history of entrenched fears and misconceptions about fungi has led to their near absence in Australian ecological consciousness and biodiversity conservation.
Alison will launch the book at Mueller Hall, National Herbarium, Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, Birdwood Avenue, South Yarra. See here for more detail.
