Alison Pouliot is fascinated by mushrooms. Between 2012 and 2016, the environmental historian and zoologist spent a thousand days with mushrooms in the forests of twelve countries looking for the answer to a question - why are mushrooms perceived so differently from other forms of life? On Wednesday, September 25, (start 7.30 p.m.) she will present her book "The Allure of Fungi" at the SLF in Davos. The richly illustrated book visualizes the allure of fungi and their significance for our ecosystems and biodiversity. Following the book presentation, Alison Pouliot and mountain ecologist and fungi expert Frank Graf (SLF) will discuss the importance of fungi for our environment with the audience.
An event of the Graduate School Graubünden in cooperation with the WSL Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research SLF, Davos. Participation is free of charge. Registration is not necessary. The lecture will be held in English.
