Conservancy Day- Fantastic Fungi: Movers and Shapers of Forest Ecosystems

November 16 @ 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Location: Middleton Public Library (In the downstairs Archer Room through the lobby stairwell.)

Registration required– please register at Middleton Public Library page

Fungi are often overlooked, misunderstood, and definitely underappreciated. Yet these diverse and highly evolved organisms are critical to function of forest ecosystems. Their varied lifestyles are suited to roles as symbiotic mutualists, nature’s recyclers, or disease-causing tree pathogens. Fungi profoundly influence the initiation, development, composition, stability, and change of forests.

Glen Stanosz is a Wisconsin native and the Emeritus Professor of Tree and Forest Health at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. His research has focused on the biology and management of tree diseases caused by fungi. Professor Stanosz is an award-winning teacher whose students include future foresters, horticulturists, and arborists, and professionals in the green industry.
