Online Lectures and Presentations for Spring/Summer 2020

NYMS is adapting to the circumstances in which we all find ourselves due to the COVID 19 pandemic. In an effort to bring the Society informative, entertaining, and educational programming, we will be scheduling online lectures and presentations using Zoom. The NYMS has the capacity to host 500 participants in lectures and programs. The details of the presentations will be listed on this page as they are confirmed. Our first lecture will be by Sigrid Jakob and will cover psychoactive mushrooms. In addition to lectures we will continue to hold our Foul Weather Friends mushroom identification sessions, albeit in online Zoom sessions. Please check this page and NYMS email notifications, for more details.

These lectures are open to all NYMS members.

Tom Bigelow
An Introduction to Polypores

Coltricia montagnei Tom BigelowWhat can you know about a polypore when you don’t know what it is? A lot, it turns out: you can know something of its lifestyle, likes, and habits. This presentation reviews the basics of polypores, and touches on the group’s unsettled taxonomic status, and their historical and contemporary uses. This talk will be a good follow-up to Paul Sadowski’s recent presentation, “The Other Bracketology,” which explored the social, family, and sex lives of polypores.

About Tom Bigelow:
Tom Bigelow has been a member of the New York Mycological Society for 13 years and has served as the club’s president for the past four.

Paul Sadowski
The Other Bracketology

Since we missed out on March Madness this year, join a Zoom presentation exploring the social, family, and sex lives of polypores.

About Paul Sadowski:
Paul Sadowski has been an active amateur mycologist for over twenty-five years. He has studied mushrooms under the mentorship of Gary Lincoff, Tom Volk, Aaron Norarevian, Dennis Aita and others. He has been a working member of the New York Mycological Society during these years as Treasurer and Secretary, coordinator of the Monday Night Study Group (the Foul Weather Friends) and has led microscopy workshops for the Society. In 2010 he received The North American Mycological Association’s Harry and Elsie Knighton Service Award. Paul has also been involved in the operations of the Northeast Mycological Federation, serving as Treasurer since 2011. He chaired the 2017 NEMF Samuel Ristich Foray. Sadowski has presented numerous programs in New York and New Jersey for an audience of the mycologically curious members of garden clubs and conservancies. Since 2016 he has been an instructor in Mycology in the New York Botanical Garden Adult Education Program, offering classes in mushroom identification, Medicinal & Poisonous and miroscopy. In 2007 and 2008 with the Greenbrook Sanctuary naturalist, Nancy Slowik, they embarked on a survey of fungi within the Sanctuary’s property in the New Jersey Palisades. The experience led him to study polypores with the eminent mycologist Tom Volk at a seminar held at Eagle Hill, the Humboldt Field Research Center in Steubenville, Maine. The Charles Horton Peck Foray, the annual meeting of students of mycology and mushroom hobbyists is a touchstone for Mr. Sadowski. The relaxed atmosphere of this congregation is at once mentoring and rejuvenating. He has coordinated support from the NYMS in sponsoring three forays. Each year since 2009 Mr. Sadowski has led presentations and walks at Inwood Hill Park on behalf of the NYC Parks Department in cooperation with the Greenacre Foundation.

Sigrid Jakob and Ethan Crenson
Mushrooms 101

With the mushroom season just around the corner now is the perfect time to learn how to identify common fungi of the Northeast. This lecture is aimed at beginners and will cover tools and terminology, the basics of identifying fungi, and how to differentiate the delicious from the deadly -whether you’re picking for the pot or simply like to put a name to the next mushroom you see.

About Sigrid Jakob:
Sigrid Jakob is an independent strategist based in Greenwood Heights, NYC and a dedicated recorder of the fungi of Green-Wood Cemetery and Prospect Park. She’s not only a volunteer for the North American Mycoflora Project, but also has her own home DNA sequencing lab. She has a particular interest in Russulas and fungi growing on dung. Sigrid has presented programs to the Connecticut-Westchester Mycological Association, the Boston Mycological Club, the New Jersey Mycological Association, and numerous programs for the NYMS. Follow her on Istagram: @dung_fungi

About Ethan Crenson:
Ethan Crenson received an MFA in photography from the School of Visual Arts in NYC in the 1990s. He runs two companies, a graphic design company and a gallery/publishing house for artists’ multiples. He became interested in fungi about 13 years ago and joined the New York Mycological Society shortly thereafter. He is an active contributor to the five borough fungal survey, Gary Lincoff’s effort to inventory the fungal inhabitants of NYC. He has a keen interest in pyrenomycetous fungi, and has presented programs on these “dots on sticks and scabs on branches” at NEMF and NAMA forays and on several occasions to the NYMS.

Lawrence Millman
Q&A: Looking for fungi in the context of Covid-19

followed by. . .

The PsychroWard: Fungi in the Cold

The next installment of the NYMS Zoom presentation series brings us Lawrence Millman!

Clitocybe glacialis Teton COFollowing a few remarks about fungal foraging in the context of Covid-19, Lawrence Millman will give a presentation on fungi in the North – their adaptations to cold conditions and the possible effects of climate change on those adaptations. He’ll also talk about how fungi have been traditionally been used by northern native peoples.

Note: this presentation is an updated and expanded version of a talk Millman gave to the NYMS five years ago. A considerable amount of new material and information has been added.

About Lawrence Millman:
Writer-mycologist Lawrence Millman is the author of 18 books, including such titles as Last Places, Lost in the Arctic, A Kayak Full of Ghosts, Fascinating Fungi of New England, At the End of the World, and – most recently Fungipedia (reviewed by Eugenia Bone in the Autumn 2019 NYMS newsletter). Gary Lincoff once referred to him as “the heir of Sam Ristich,” but he thinks of himself as being more an heir of Henry David Thoreau.

Sigrid Jakob
Fascinating World of Psychoactive Fungi

Sigrid JakobThis talk will cover the fascinating world of psychoactive fungi from a multitude of angles. You’ll learn how to identify common psychoactive fungi of the North East in the field. We will cover species within Psilocybe, Panaeolus, Gymnopilus, Pholiotina, Pluteus and Amanita. We’ll survey their use in different cultures from the past to the present, and learn how their unusual biochemistry is being put to therapeutic use. We’ll end by looking at their current legal status and how this is expected to evolve with their increasing acceptance.

NYMS members will receive an email that includes a link to join the meeting.

Robert Blanchette
Historic Uses of Forest Fungi: Shaman, Emperors and Supernatural Mushrooms

Robert Blanchette

Robert Blanchette

Robert Blanchette is a professor at the University of Minnesota in the Department of Plant Pathology. Over the past 3+ decades he has taught classes and carried out research in mycology, forest pathology and wood microbiology. His research includes studies to better understand the biology and ecology of fungi that grow on wood and recent studies include the Ganoderma lucidum complex in North and South America, mechanisms fungi use to decay wood, subterranean fungi in mines and caves, fungal diversity in the Arctic and Antarctic, ethnomycology and others. He has worked closely with curators and conservators to identify fungi in museum collections and has assembled information on the extraordinary historic uses of forest fungi. The presentation will provide information on how Indigenous Peoples from different regions of the world utilize fungi including several fungi used by shaman that were thought to have supernatural powers. His research in Asia has revealed information on how Ganoderma and other fungi were used including their imperial use by Chinese Emperors. Many of the fungi that will be discussed are polypores or bracket fungi that grow on trees. Since they grow in many areas of the northern United States, including New York and New Jersey, photos of these fungi will be shown and their characteristics discussed so you can become more familiar with identifying them.

Pelham Bay Park

NYMS Pop-Up Walk, Pelham Bay Park, Nov 24, 2019 – Ten people in attendance in intermittent rain, temperatures in the mid-40s. We walked the Hunter Island section of Pelham Bay Park and found over 80 species including the two-tone beauty Phlebia incarnata (with its constant companion—or maybe frenemy—Stereum ostrea). But the popular favorite of the day was Hohenbuehelia mastrucata. Pictured with this list is the Merismodes sp. which bears a striking resemblance to M. anomala with encrusted hairs and the occasional enlarged, balloon-like tip. But there is something about it that looks different from the M. anomala we usually collect.
