Talk – Thursday 13th December 2018 – Nature’s Recyclers

Nature’s Recyclers – From Dumbledore to Dung Roundhead

Without the decay of animal and plant matter and the recycling of nutrients, life would grind to a halt. Fungi, together with bacteria and some invertebrates, are the main agents in the process of decomposition, and the participation of fungi in this process is probably their most important role. This talk will illustrate the great diversity of fungi and some of the invertebrates which are nature’s recyclers.
