On Wednesday September 3rd, the public is invited to a program focused on the major types of mycorrhizae, including specific host-fungus pairings, their anatomy, and how they help feed the host plants, presented by Larry Littlefield.
Larry Littlefield is a retired Professor of Plant Pathology at North Dakota State University and Oklahoma State University, where he conducted field and laboratory research and taught plant pathology and mycology. His presentation will be on the anatomy and biology of fungal mycorrhizae in a wide range of plants. Larry is also an accomplished photographer and author. He is the lead author of “Wildflowers of the Sandia and Manzano Mountains of Central New Mexico”, published in 2011. The second edition of this book is titled “Wildflowers of the Northern and Central Mountains of New Mexico” by Larry Littlefield and Pearl Burns.
A short chapter meeting precedes the talk. Native plant books will be on display and available for purchase. This free public program is sponsored by the Albuquerque Chapter, Native Plant Society of New Mexico, and takes place at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History, 1801 Mountain Rd. NW, Albuquerque.
