Fungi in a Drought-Stricken Time

Mycologist Lawrence Millman will talk about the current drought in New England (not to mention the rest of North America) and its effect on fungi. Likewise he’ll discuss how other life forms suffer when fungi don’t have water.

From the effects of climate change on Arctic fungi to the climate change-inspired drought that recently affected fungi in eastern North America, Millman will explore the current state of fungi and speculate about the ecological future – for fungi are among the most important organisms on the planet. Among other things, no fungi = no forests.
