OMS General Meeting 2019-08-19

August 19, 2019 @ 6:30 pm 9:00 pm

6:30 pm Mushroom Identification Session. If you’ve found mushrooms that are in good condition, wrap them in waxed paper, aluminum foil, or put them in a paper bag and bring them (with a spore print, if possible). Bring your field guide to reference the mushrooms that are on display.

7:15 pm OMS General Meeting
7:30 pm Program: Leah Bendlin,
Marvelous Mycoheterotrophs

If you’ve ever been fascinated by a waxy, alien looking plant without green parts in the woods that doesn’t even seem like it should be real, you may have been enchanted by a marvelous mycoheterotroph! In this talk, we’ll discuss the biology and associations of these strange looking plants that depend upon fungi for survival, as well as some of the scientific discoveries that lead to the current understanding of how they function. Leah will also help you get to know and recognize some local species and learn how they might help us in successful mushroom hunting!
