Danny's talk will be an entertaining take on human bias in mushrooming, how wrong we've been when trying to figure out what's important about a mushroom, and how the things we dismiss as irrelevant often turn out to be the most important features. It includes some of the strangest and most surprising results to come out of DNA studies lately and he will piece together a bit of the history of the evolution of mushrooms shapes.

Danny Miller is the PSMS Librarian, Education Chair and one of Brian Luther's ID Committee members and an emergency poisoning point person for King County Washington Poison Control. Danny also belongs to the PNW Key Council, a group of amateur and professional mycologists and is a co-author of MatchMaker with Ian Gibson, the free PNW mushroom ID program for the PC and MAC. He has a big interest in taxonomy and figuring out where all of the mushrooms fit into the fungal tree of life.
