Kathie Hodge, associate professor of mycology and director of Cornell's Plant Pathology Herbarium, unravels some of the mysteries of mushrooms and fungal species, and the Cornellians who have shaped our understanding of fungi in all their forms, in "More Mushroom Alumni," a Reunion 2013 lecture held Friday, June 7.

Hodge's topics include a mushroom discovered on the Cornell campus in 1902, then never seen again; lost fungi collected during the 1896 Peary expedition to Greenland that involved several Cornell students; an odd little fungus that subverts the sex drive of a moss; the world's most poisonous mushroom, which was named at Cornell; and some exotic-seeming backyard fungi.
