Tom Volk

"Toads and Toadstools"

Tom Volk, a mycologist from the University of Wisconsin La Crosse, will be giving a lecture called 'Toads and Toadstools,' about old wives' tales associated with fungi - poisonous mushrooms, molds, etc.

Tom Volk is a Professor of Biology at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. He teaches courses on Mycology, Medical Mycology, Plant-Microbe Interactions, Food & Industrial Mycology, Advanced Mycology, Organismal Biology and Latin & Greek for Scientists. Tom Volk's Fungi website has a popular "Fungus of the Month" feature, and an extensive introduction to the Kingdom Fungi. Besides dabbling in mushroom cultivation, Tom has worked on the genera Morchella (morels), Cantharellus (chanterelles), Hydnellum (a tooth fungus), Armillaria (honey mushrooms) and Laetiporus (chicken of the woods, or sulfur shelf), as well as several medical mycology projects, prairie mycorrhizae, mycoprospecting, and fungi involved in coal formation. He also has conducted fungal biodiversity studies in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Alaska, and Israel. Having lectured in 35 states so far, Tom is a popular speaker at many amateur and professional mycological events throughout North America, including many NAMA and NEMF forays.

IT'S THE LAW

In 2010, fungi were incorporated into Chile's Environmental Law (No .19,300, General Bases of the Environment, 1994) such that the Ministry of Environment must ensure fungi are classified in a national inventory using scientific and IUCN Red-Listing criteria.
