Do you know your fungi? Come and take that important first step towards understanding these fascinating organisms.

About this event

On this course you will learn how to identify some of the larger fungi using their physical characteristics. There will also be a discussion on the habitats, ecology and life cycle of fungi.

The morning session will be spent in the classroom with a tutorial covering the physical characteristics, habitats and other identification features of the larger fungi.

The afternoon will be spent looking for fungi in the Reserve (subject to the conditions of the year and the abundance of the fungi) and reviewing specimens in the field.

Advice will be given on useful books and field guides.

Edibility will be considered but this study day is for those wishing to understand and identify fungi - not for the kitchen!

By the end of the session participants should:

  • be able to identify some of the larger fungi using physical characteristics
  • have some understanding of the habitats, ecology and life cycle of fungi

Led by Joyce Pitt, Botanist
