SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE PAGE

MISSION

This committee is responsible for recording a genus and species list of mushrooms found at forays. It arranges and identifies any fungi on display at Society meetings, fairs, or other events. The Scientific Committee is the primary liaison for the Poison Control Center and the state medical and veterinary communities, when and if experts in mushroom identification and toxicity are requested. It is also the primary liaison for professional mycologists and other bona fide scientific researchers who wish to enlist the assistance of the Members of this Society. It will assist the Culinary Committee with establishing fungal species white-lists and safety protocols for mushroom consumption.

2016 Chair: William Warner
