  • Mycology students, Kendra Thornhill and Stephanie Simms, examine the winter and golden chanterelles, both choice edible mycorrhizal mushrooms collected during the class field trip.

Research

My research interests have always been focused on fungi, in particular the cell biology of insect pathogenic fungi and, more recently, the ecology of mycorrhizal mushrooms in the boreal forest.

Cortinarius mucosus, a mushroom associated with red pines, was collected during field work in Terra Nova National Park.
