Talk: What are Fungi Doing for Our Bushlands?

October 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$11 – $25

Did you notice fungi popping up in mulch or lawns after the winter rains? Did you wonder what it might be named? Fungal Ecologist and Fungimap Mycologist Dr Sapphire McMullan-Fisher thinks a more interesting question to ask is: what is that fungus *doing*?

Fungi fruit bodies like mushrooms, puffballs, stinkhorns and so forth are a sign that the fungus is in there, working away hidden in the grass, soil and wood. Many fungi are nutrient recyclers, others are symbionts of plants, and a few are parasitic. Join us to find out more about the Wood Wide Web, fungal ecology and how fungi work to keep our bushland healthy.
