BOOK LAUNCH – The Allure of Fungi

Although relatively little known, fungi provide the links between the terrestrial organisms and ecosystems that underpin our functioning planet.

The Allure of Fungi presents fungi through multiple perspectives – those of mycologists and ecologists, foragers and forayers, naturalists and farmers, aesthetes and artists, philosophers and Traditional Owners. It explores how a history of entrenched fears and misconceptions about fungi has led to their near absence in Australian ecological consciousness and biodiversity conservation.

Alison will launch the book with Dr Tom May and Professor Libby Robin at Mueller Hall, National Herbarium, Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, Birdwood Avenue, South Yarra, on

20 FEBRUARY 2019 at 6pm.

Please join us for a glass of champagne and to hear some excerpts from the book.
