12/3/23 Osher Lecture, 10:30-12 at Next stage

Blight: Fungi and the Coming Pandemic, with Emily Monosson

Blight is about the devastating impacts of emergent (or relatively new) fungal pathogens across species. Wildlife, crops, forests and humans too – are all potential hosts for deadly fungal pathogens. Following readings of selected chapter excerpts there will be plenty of time for more in-depth discussion of the problems of fungal pandemics and epidemics and possible strategies for prevention, resurrection or protection of susceptible species.
