On a recent trip to Joshua Tree NP we saw only a few fungi, some beautiful lichens. I also took a picture of this grass (right) which in a funny way, resembles a zygomycete sporangia. We will have to return when the rains come for the wildflower show and seek out the palm oases in the park where there is a better chance of finding fungi in the desert.
For those of you with cameras at Fungal Genetics this year, I’ve started a Flickr pool to archive and shared pictures. Feel free to join in and post pictures you’d like to share from the current or past Asilomar or European Fungal Genetics meetings.
