Fungal Conservation in Alberta
Fungi are vital components of all ecosystems on earth, performing important functions in nutrient cycling, assisting plant growth, and even plant communication. But what is being done to ensure that fungus species don’t become extinct? This webinar will discuss the status of the conservation of fungi in Alberta and beyond, and will address challenges and suggestions for a way forward. This is a free webinar, open to all who are interested, hosted by the Alberta Mycological Society and provided by Michael J. Schulz. Michael has an extensive background in mycology, botany, and ecology, and performed the assessment of macrofungi for the prairie provinces for Environment and Climate Change Canada’s Wild Species 2020 project.
