SUNY Cortland Community Roundtable Explores Mushrooms and Molds

10/20/2009 

A pair of scientists from SUNY Cortland and Cornell University will give a presentation on how mushrooms, mold and other fungi impact the lives of humans on Thursday, Nov. 5, at SUNY Cortland. 

The Community Roundtable, titled “Fungus Among Us: Mushrooms and Molds in Our Lives,” takes place from 8-9 a.m. in SUNY Cortland’s Park Center Hall of Fame Room. Refreshments will be served at 7:45 a.m. Sponsored by the President’s Office and the College’s Center for Educational Exchange (CEE), the community roundtable is free and open to the public.

Fungi are interesting, diverse and, with a few exceptions such as athlete’s foot, yeasts and blue cheese, are not well known. Timothy Baroni, SUNY Cortland distinguished professor of biological sciences, and Kathie T. Hodge, associate professor of plant pathology and plant-microbe biology at Cornell University, will discuss the effects of fungi on people and the planet. Their topics will range from fungi that cause human disease, molds in houses, mushrooms and mushroom poisoning to the key roles of fungi in global ecosystems.

All Community Roundtables are recorded and subsequently available as webcasts on SUNY Cortland’s central webcasting page at www.cortland.edu/webcast. For more information, contact the CEE at (607) 753-4214 or visit www.cortland.edu/cee.
