Speaker: Dr. M. Catherine Aime
Program: "Rusts Never Sleep"
In terms of species numbers and ubiquity, rust fungi are an incredibly successful lineage. Together, the more than 7000 described species form the largest known group of plant pathogens, while also having incredibly complex life cycles. This talk will explore the biology of these fascinating organisms and discuss the contributions that molecular systematics have made to our understanding of their evolution.
Welcome!
LAMS is a non-profit group whose purpose is to foster and expand the understanding and appreciation of mycology (that is the study of mushrooms and fungi).
We create and sponsor fun mushroom related events and help people learn about and identify mushrooms they find in the greater Los Angeles area.
More information about LAMS events is available on the Calendar page.
LAMS members will receive an announcement of forays as soon as they are scheduled.
