This is a fairly dense and thorough introductory presentation on life cycles of mushroom-forming Basidio- and Ascomycetes. Mushroom anatomy and spore dispersal mechanisms are discussed, with examples. It’s designed for adults with varied backgrounds and can fill a 2-hour time slot. URLs are present for all web-sourced photos/videos and names are cited for all others.
