"Evolution of fungi, studying fungal forms and their dance partners"
Stajich, will present a talk on interactions between fungi and plants,
animals, or other fungi with some insight into how we are tracking down
a recently emerged disease of amphibians. He will discuss studies on how
fungal forms have changed through evolution focusing on what is
understood about the evolution of mushrooms and other fruiting body
