    Curry Punk & Jelly Brain: The Conservation and Aesthetics of Fungi, by Alison Pouliot
    6:45pm, October 9, 2023
    South Vancouver Mycological Society
    3821 Cedar Hill Cross Rd, Victoria
    IN PERSON & LIVE STREAMED! OPEN TO PUBLIC!!

    Alison is travelling the PNW to share her adventures, photographs and knowledge from documenting and studying fungi around the globe. Join SVIMS (by donation/free) for an evening of learning about mushrooms!
    Topic:
    - The earth’s rapidly changing climate and environmental issues have come into sharp focus through the demise of charismatic megafauna and the ‘biodiversity crisis’.
    - But what about stinkhorns and slime moulds?
    - How do fungi and their kin get our attention when they are not only overshadowed by more ‘popular’ organisms, but are rarely included in our ideas about ‘nature’ or ‘biodiversity’?
    - Over the last 25 years Alison has divided her time between hemispheres, working both with fungi and their followers. She has been actively involved in fungal conservation and land restoration programs.
    - In this talk Alison will explore how fungi are perceived across hemispheres in conservation contexts and which fungal flagships best capture the public imagination.

    Alison will also some stories from the writing of her recent book, Meetings with Remarkable Mushrooms in which she interacted with fungi and their followers across a dozen countries.

    DR ALISON POULIOT is an ecologist, author and professional environmental photographer with a focus on fungi. Her work spans both northern and southern hemispheres ensuring two autumns and a double dose of fungi each year. Alison is actively involved in teaching, research and conservation, and has conducted over 800 fungus forays across many countries. Alison is author of The Allure of Fungi, Wild Mushrooming, and Meeting with Remarkable Mushrooms. www.alisonpouliot.com
