WEBINAR Ornithomycology: Where Birds and Fungi Intersect

Zoom Webinar | Registration Required | FREE
Guest Presenter: Chris Garza
With birds in the air and fungi in the earth, you may think that the two don’t interact much. However, there are several documented ways that fungi and birds play roles in each other’s lives. In this talk, we will explore some of the known interactions and observations that have been studied or documented. From collecting for food, to nest building, or even to impress mates, birds have proven to utilize fungi in several interesting ways. Join us to learn about these and the other ways that birds and fungi interact.
