In Collaboration with Mycological Society of Marin: Mushrooms of Mexico with Alan Rockefeller.

Alan Rockefeller is a mycologist studying the mushrooms of California and Mexico. He has been focusing on the taxonomy and photography of Mexican mushrooms for the past six years.

This presentation features Alan’s favorite photos from his recent field work in Mexico. You’ll see many species of edible, poisonous and hallucinogenic mushrooms and learn about new taxonomic insights that came from analyzing the DNA of his collections. His interest in phylogenetics led him to set up a DNA lab to get sequences of mushrooms in an effort to find new species in California and Mexico.When he is not photographing or sequencing mushrooms, he is busy photographing the microscopic features of mushrooms, hacking computers, modifying electronics and working in the IT Security field.

Registration recommended. Please register above so that we can give the library an accurate headcount.
