February 8, 2021 @ 6:30 pm 9:00 pm PST

7:00 OMS Society Business: Announcements, Introductions, or Short Presentations

7:30 pm Presentation: Spores: rules and exceptions, unknowns galore.
We’ll dive into the sporal world, and look at all kinds of different aspects of spores: what they’re for, how they get into the world, whether spore colour matters, and whether there are any correlations between spore size and mushroom size, and with role in the environment.

Speaker: Else Vellinga, PhD.
Else is a mycologist who is interested in naming and classifying mushroom species in California and beyond, with a focus on parasol mushrooms and their relatives. These systematic studies lay the basis for further research, and especially for conservation purposes.  She has described 22 mushrooms species from California as new to the world. She received her PhD at Leiden University, Netherlands and also received training at the National Herbarium of the Netherlands.   She lives with her cat and her knitting in Berkeley, California.
