Timothy J. Baroni, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Biological Sciences, presented a poster at the 11th International Mycological Congress meetings held July 15 to 21 in San Juan, PR. Baroni and co-authors from Italy, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and the US, including two of Baroni’s former students, Tracy Armstrong Curtis ’01 and Lance Lacey ’04, presented data accumulated in the Dominican Republic over an extended 20-year period on the biodiversity of group of not well-known fungi. Curtis and Lacey worked in the Dominican Republic with Baroni from 1996 to 2006 funded by Research Experiences for Undergraduates from the National Science Foundation. The title of the presentation and the publication that will result from the work is “The Rhodocybe/Clitopilus clade (Entolomataceae, Agaricomyetes) in the Dominican Republic: a new genus, new species and first reports for Hispaniola.”
