What we're about

The Los Angeles Mycological Society (LAMS) is a non-profit group whose
purpose is to foster and expand the understanding and appreciation of mycology
(that is the study of mushrooms and fungi). LAMS is an eclectic group of

how to correctly identify a mushroom, learning about the health benefits of
mushrooms, how you can grow your own mushrooms, and about the critical role
mushrooms play in the evolution of this planet. For more information about

LAMS General Meeting

Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County

Speaker: Dr. M. Catherine Aime Program: "Rusts Never Sleep" In terms of species numbers and ubiquity, rust fungi are an incredibly successful lineage. Together, the more than 7000 described species form the largest known group of plant pathogens, while also having incredibly complex life cycles. This talk will explore the biology of these fascinating organisms and discuss the contributions that molecular systematics have made to our understanding of their evolution.
