Wood Decay Fungi Link The Living Tree To Living Soil
March 2, Saturday, 11:00 am, Curtis Memorial Library (Morrell Reading Room), 23 Pleasant St., Brunswick
The bane of many a homeowner, wood decay fungi are an integral part of forested ecosystems. In this year’s presentation for MMA, Kevin is going to delve into this topic, which happens to be his professional passion. Kevin is a plant physiologist and forest researcher with the U.S. Forest Service in Durham, NH. His research specialties include studying decay fungi and the responses of trees to storm related injuries.
