In this presentation, Lawrence Millman will discuss northern fungi and, by extension, high altitude fungi. First, he’ll talk about the attitudes of northern Native people toward fungi, then he’ll focus on the cold weather adaptations of certain northern species.

He’ll also discuss the possible effects of climate change on tundra and taiga fungi.
