Slide Programs > Fungus Among Us — Mushrooms of Ohio

Ohio is home to more than 2000 different kinds of wild mushrooms. Many are inedible, but a few are delicious. Some mushrooms are toxic, and a small number are deadly poisonous. Mushrooms are fungi, which play an important role in many of the foods we eat, the beverages we drink, and the drugs used to treat many illnesses and injuries. Fungi are also an indispensable part of the soil, and many of them make beautiful subjects for close up photography. In this program, illustrated with dozens of color photos, Ian Adams introduces us to the fascinating world of Ohio’s mushrooms.
