This month, Dr Cathy Cripps will be visiting the Colorado Mycological Society to give a lecture on Montana’s fungi. Dr Cathy Cripps is an associate professor at Montana State University where she teaches Biology, Mycology and the Ecology of Fungi. She completed her PhD with Orson Miller at VPI on aspen fungi. Her current research is on Arctic-Alpine fungi and she is also examining how inoculation of seedlings with native mycorrhizal fungi can help restore whitebark and limber pine forests. She has numerous publications on Rocky Mountain fungi and edited “Fungi in Forest Ecosystems” and the newly published “Arctic-alpine Mycology 8” (online at North American Fungi). Cathy has collected in Colorado and Montana for most of her life and looks forward to sharing information on mushrooms in the Northern Rocky Mountains with her Southern Rocky Mountain friends! If you are interested in attending her lecture, visit the Colorado Mycological Society website for information on CMS meetings!
