WORKSHOP – Fungal Wonders of the Little Desert

LITTLE DESERT

An Introduction to the Fungal Wonders of the Little Desert

This workshop introduces participants to the diversity, ecology and curiosities of the Kingdom Fungi, specific to fungi found in the Little Desert region but also within wider Australian and international contexts.

It includes an interactive and illustrated seminar on the major fungal groups, the basics of fungus identification, fungal ecology, and the natural and cultural history of fungi. Fungus specimens from the local area will be displayed, discussed and examined during the workshop. The importance of fungal conservation will also be discussed in the context of woodland and agricultural ecosystems.

Participants will also learn to recognise the various diagnostic characteristics used to identify fungi in the field.

Following the indoor session will be an exciting foray through the various habitat types of Snape Reserve to search for species of interest.

Supplementary notes will also be provided.

Further fungus workshops and forays are listed here.
