The Future of Fungi

Join Tom May, Principal Research Scientist (Mycology) in a virtual discussion with writer and climate activist Sophie Cunningham (author of Melbourne and City of Trees) about the future of fungi.

Fungi are megadiverse, estimated at several million species globally. Discover the role of fungi in ecosystems and how they will fare in future climates; and learn how fungi experts tackle the challenge of documenting the numerous "dark fungi".
