The Bay Area: cradle of truffle science in North America

Thursday, January 12 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

| Free!!

Dr. Michael Castellno has done extensive research on the aspects of ectomycorrhizae in forest ecosystems. For the last 20 years, his research has focused on increasing our understanding of the natural history and identification of fleshy macro-fungi (particularly truffles) in forested ecosystems. This directly relates to how ecosystems can be maintained and restored and involves aspects of the ecology, biology and functional diversity of forest fungi. His main interests and areas of expertise include the biodiversity of macrofungi (particularly truffle species) in forests, and managing rare, sensitive and endemic macrofungi.

His current position is Research Forester, USDA Northern Research Station in Corvallis, Oregon.

Doors open at 7:30. Meeting starts promptly at 8:00.
