2018 Exploring the Hidden World of Truffles

truffles   Issac with microscope


Instructor:
Scot Loring, Ph.D.
Dates: Friday-Sunday, November 16 – 18, 2018
Location: SFI, Selma, OR
Tuition: $165
 
Truffles are highly evolved mushrooms that have adapted for survival by “going underground” and developing dispersal strategies including scents. Because they’resubterranean, truffles often go unnoticed. Our instructor Scot Loring, who co-authored the soon to be published Rare Truffles of Oregon, will show you where to look for truffles, how to identify them by sight and smell and under the microscope. We’ll investigate their important ecological roles in the mycorrhizal networks.
 
In a series of labs, lectures and field trips, you’ll discover how to find hidden truffles and learn how to identify both common and rare ones. Nearly 400 different types of truffles are known to exist in Oregon: many species are found in the diverse Siskiyou bioregion. These include rare types of conservation concern as well as some gourmet edibles that fetch exorbitant prices on the market.
