Event Description

Aquatic Biology and Fungi demonstrations.

Using powerful microscopes, you'll have an opportunity to witness tiny, live organisms that live in regional fresh water supplies. You’ll also have an opportunity to talk to Jane Clements about her interest in microbiology and watch these organisms' behaviors which are normally invisible to the human eye.

Join Renee Johansen, with the Lab’s Bioenergy and Biome Science group, while she shares information on the strange world of fungi. Behaving differently from animals or even plants, what you typically see of them above the ground or outside of their host only tells part of the story. Have fun as she offers up their many shapes and microscopic features, and shares the role they play in our planet’s carbon cycle.
