More than 3000 species of macrofungi are partners to the trees and plants in the forested ecosystems of BC. This lecture and walk will explore how fungi, most of which are largely invisible to the casual observer, play significant roles as decomposers, parasites, and beneficial symbionts. In the lecture we will explore the ecological dimensions of the partnership; on the walk we will look at evidence of these relationships in the October fruiting bodies of the fungi.
