OUR NEXT MEETING
SUNDAY. MARCH 12th, 1:30PM
Frelinghuysen Arboretum

Our guest speaker will be João P.M. Araújo “Introduction of the Life Styles and Forms of Fungi
Living on Insects”. Zombie ants are a fascinating example of an insect invaded by parasitic
fungus to spread its spores. Mr. Araújo has studied zombie ants in North and South America and
Africa. His talk will introduce us to the diverse forms and ways of fungi that interact with insects.
ND AFTER THAT, OUR APRIL MEETING

Misconceptions". A pediatrician and avid amateur mycologist, Dr. Benjamin’s landmark
book Mushrooms: Poisons and Panaceas: A Handbook for Naturalists, Mycologists, and
Physicians, remains an indispensable reference for physicians and mycologists.
