This is the perfect 2-day course for beginners looking to learn more about the fungi around them and start to identify fungi groups. You will learn what to look for with valuable observational field skills, as well as being introduced to the world of spore printing and its potential to reveal diagnostic features that will help you identify fungi to genus using a range of written, digital and online keys.
