Fantastic Fungi Fuel Forest Growth


Thursday, November 21, 2013 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Expand your understanding of the central role that fungi play in the dynamic life of a forest.  This program will provide basic context for understanding how fungi contribute to forest growth.  We will explore the interrelationships among fungi, plants, and animals in forests of the Pacific Northwest.  The beneficial roles of certain root-dwelling fungi (some of which produce choice edible mushrooms and truffles) is emphasizes.  Presentation of research results that have direct application to decisions made by small woodland and other types of forest ownerships in western Oregon, spanning diverse management objectives, will be provided in a non-technical context.

Speaker:  Dan Luoma, Assistant Professor, Senior Research, Department of Forest Ecosystems and Society, OSU.  Dan has been studying forest fungi at OSU since 1984
