Do Edible Mushrooms in Oregon Contain Radioactive Contaminants?
Matt Trappe, one of the authors of “North American Truffles,” will talk about local mushrooms having radioactive contaminants on October 10th. Matt is a research ecologist with over 15 years experience working in western forests. He specializes in disturbance ecology particularly fire, and mycology, as well as soil microbiology, DNA and isotopic analysis, forestry, and botany. Matt has a Ph.D in Environmental Sciences and a MS in Forest Science/Forest Resources, both from OSU. He also has a BS in Electronic Engineering/Automated Manufacturing and worked as an electro-mechanical engineer for a decade before entering graduate school. This should be a very informative talk.
