BAMS Monthly Meeting

Cornelia Cho: Mushrooms from a Korean Perspective
UC Berkeley, 338 Koshland Hall
Tuesday, April 18, 2017| 7:30 - 9:30 pm


Dr. Cornelia Cho presents: “Mushrooms from a Korean Perspective”. Although the dynamic is shifting, thanks to the popularity of Korean Dramas and the current chef romance with our ingredients, many people in this country still don’t know much about our culture as distinct from the other East Asian countries of China and Japan. As a mushroom club president and a woman of Korean ancestry, I look forward to sharing my heritage, its particularities and Korea’s cultural, culinary and medicinal relationship with the fungal kingdom. It should be a fun time for all.

Cho is President of the Mushroom Club of Georgia, and has a long interest in the medicinal aspects of fungi.

Doors open at 7:30. Meeting starts promptly at 8:00.

BAMS Monthly Meeting

Anna Bazzicalupo: Benjamin Woo's Russula Herbarium and his contribution to science
UC Berkeley, 338 Koshland Hall
Tuesday, May 16, 2017| 7:30 - 9:30 pm


Anna Bazzicalupo grew up in Naples, Italy. She did her undergrad degree in Biology at University of Aberdeen in Scotland and her Masters at the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh, where her interest in fungi started.

As a PhD student at the University of British Columbia, she is interested in the taxonomy and systematics of Russula of the Pacific Northwest. Her work involves using this complicated group as an example of collaboration between mycological societies and academia, towards the better understanding of the systematics and taxonomy of our local mushrooms. She has been working on the Benjamin Woo Russula collection from the Burke Museum, to barcode the Russulas of the Pacific Northwest.

Doors open at 7:30. Meeting starts promptly at 8:00.
