Natural History Live

These are free online natural history talks, comprising of a 30-40 minute talk from either an FSC member of staff or a guest speaker, followed by a question and answer session. We host them on Zoom and we will send out joining instructions on the day of the event. These are our new Virtual Meet Ups(VMUs), we’ve re-named them as we’re changing how we run them slightly so we thought it was time for a change! Sign up to the FSC BioLinks newsletter to find out about our other online learning opportunities here.

Introduction to Identifying Fungi

To celebrate UK Fungus Day we’ve teamed up with Liz Holden and the British Mycological Society for this Natual History Live talk. Liz has been seriously interested in fungi for thirty five years and has been involved in fungal field surveys for the last twenty five, working in a range of habitats across the UK. She is particularly interested in sharing her fascination in the identification, recording and ecology of fungi. Fungi rarely look like their pictures in the field guides so knowing the important macro-characters is a vital start to identifying these fascinating organisms. This talk is an introduction to these characters and highlights some of the easy mistakes to make when starting out.


The FSC BioLinks project is funded by the Field Studies Council and National Lottery Heritage Fund. These Natural History Live webinars are made available to all at no cost. However, we’ve listened to your feedback and added an optional fee for those that would like the opportunity to contribute financially to our work to provide adult learning opportunities for a range of audiences.
