Today we focus heavily on fungal spores. From Buller's drop, to spores as rainmakers, brilliant mycologist Nik Money talks with us about our current understanding of these microscopic fungus starters. We also discuss issues with taxonomy and pleomorphism of fungi.
Nicholas P. Money is a gentleman of letters, a mycologist, and professor at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. He is the author of a number of popular science books that celebrate the diversity of the microbial world. His latest book is titled The Selfish Ape: Human Nature and Our Path to Extinction.
