Fungi in the Cold
Lawrence Millman

Lawrence Millman is the author of 16 books on the Arctic, ethnography, and fungi. His most recent book is Giant Polypores & Stoned Reindeer: Travels in Kingdom Fungi. He has studied fungi in places as diverse as Western Samoa, East Greenland, a meteor crater in northern Quebec, Costa Rica, Panama, and Nantucket. With fellow mycologist Bill Neill, he found a polypore (Echinodontium ballouii) in 2006 previously thought to be extinct. More recently, in Massachusetts, he found a tooth fungus, Radulomyces copelandii, that had never been documented in the New World before. He lives in Cambridge, MA.
