This course is designed to familiarize the beginning mushroom enthusiast with the biology and ecology of fleshy fungi within the different forest types of Highlands and the surrounding area. Students will learn the basics of macrofungi identification to genus level, using selected keys for macroscopic and microscopic features. Students will practice using microscopes and preparing slides in order to become proficient with using microscopes and preparing fungal tissues properly for identification. Daily activities will include lectures and field trips followed by laboratory time for the remainder of each day. Training obtained from this course will provide a firm foundation for those students that choose to take the advanced two-week course on fleshy fungi at HBS taught by Dr. Andrew Methven during alternate years.
