J.R. Blair: What is a Mushroom Anyway?

J.R. Blair: What is a Mushroom Anyway? In-Person

Members of the Kingdom Fungi, including those that produce mushrooms, are extremely important components of the natural environment. They have such diverse ecological roles as essential decomposers, obligate mutualists with plants, parasites on other organisms, among others. J.R. Blair will give a basic introduction of this remarkable group of organisms and how they fit in the natural world.

J.R. Blair received his Bachelor’s degree at the Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington and obtained his Master’s degree at San Francisco State University in 1999 studying with the accomplished mycologist, Dr. Dennis Desjardin. His thesis was Fungi Associated with Arctostaphylos in Northern California. Since that time he has been an active member of the Mycological Society of San Francisco. He was a lecturer of biology at SFSU for 21 years until his retirement in December 2020.
