The Norwegian Mycological Society held their annual Winter Meeting recently. As usual there were several interesting talks to appeal to a wide range of mycological interests. In addition to the latest scientific findings regarding a particular species or genus, topics like the law governing free access picking mushrooms in the wild and an introduction to DNA analysis were also covered.
Outside the auditorium, the action was less formal and more filled with myco-fun.
