Areas of Expertise:

  • Development of systematic classifications and identification guides for Canadian mushrooms (Agaricales, and other large fungi visible to the public) and of up-dated molecular based phylogenies with corrected nomenclature for these fungi.
  • Acquisition and generation of knowledge on the biology, toxicity, edibility, geography, pathogenicity, and abundance of such species
  • Development of comprehensive databases: on Canadian Plant Disease and Decay Fungi; on Mushrooms.
  • Development of molecular tools for the identification of soil inhabiting Agaricomycotina.
  • Curator of the National Mycological Herbarium (DAOM)

Current Projects:

  • Fungi: Develop new information on taxonomy, phylogeny, distribution and biology of fungi, including systematic research related to biosecurity/alien invasive species as well as species involved in the development of bioproducts
  • Build and maintain reference collections and databases of fungi: National Mycological Herbarium (DAOM). Support for Canadian Collection of Fungal Cultures (CCFC)
  • Development of phylogenomics capability, rapid detection and identification tools for soil inhabiting Basidiomycota.
  • Accurate identification, information and related training for scientific research and biodiversity protection.
