University of Oslo and ForBio are offering a field course focusing on the fungal diversity of eastern Norway. The two main aims of the course are to acquire more knowledge about fungal diversity, fungistics and systematics, and learn to use literature, stereomicroscope and microscopy to identify fungi based on micro- and macroscopic characters. We will also focus on the species ecology and phylogenetic relationships.

Time: September 16-20, 2013.
