Fantastic Fungi: Movers and Shapers of Forest Ecosystems
Talk by Glen Stanosz, University of Wisconsin–Madison Professor of Tree and Forest Health.
Saturday, November 19 | 2:00–3:00
Fungi are often overlooked, misunderstood, and underappreciated. Yet these diverse and highly evolved organisms are critical to the function of forest ecosystems. Their varied lifestyles are suited to roles as symbiotic mutualists, nature’s recyclers, or disease-causing tree pathogens. Fungi profoundly influence the initiation, development, composition, stability, and change of forests.
