Colombia's Mushroom Magic

Daniel is back with a new exciting show based on three Mushroaming trips to Colombia.

Lowland tropical rain forests are endowed with exotic Amazonian Cordyceps and Xylaria species and colorful Marasmius. In the mountain cloud forest massive Andean oaks are associated with a range of chanterelles, boletes, Amanita etc, many of these having their southernmost distribution here.  High up in the Páramo fungal diversity is reduced, but Dr. Seuss-like plant life is mind boggling. Culinary & medicinal fungal resources are in the very early stages of development in Colombia, but surely will become more important.
