  • Shannon Berch from U of British Columbia re ectomycorrhizal fungi of Quercus garryana in BC. This community of fungi has received little attention outside of Oregon and California. These populations represent the northern extent for this tree species.
  • John Klironomos/John Hume (students of Dr. Daniel Durrall, UBC Okanagan), sharing their findings on Amanita phalloides study in Kelowna, BC
  • Melanie Jones’s student Justin Meeds discussing nutrient uptake strategies of ectomycorrhizal fungi on Vancouver Island.

The Key Council has vouchered many of the specimens collected, to be deposited in the UBC herbarium.
Dr. Durrall will take sequences of about 40 of the collections.
Details to be provided later.

The Observations in this list are currently only those of Oluna & Adolf Ceska and Joseph D. Cohen. The list may be updated to included other vouchered Observations.

August 5, 2019 O.&A. Ceska added this to the list:
Oluna Ceska’s collections from the PNW Key Council foray to Peachland, BC.

For most of these collections, Emma Harrower & Anne Leathem should be listed as other collectors.
Names with an asterisk (*) mark the species that were photographed, but not collected.
The six-digit numbers are numbers of the Mushroom Observer observations.
