Print Info

We will explore the SLU campus and talk about various tree species and the fungi that help and sometimes harm them.

Claire Burkum earned an M.S. degree from Appalachian State University in NC studying mycorrhizal fungi (fungi that grow in mutualistic relationship with many trees). She currently teaches General Biology labs at St. Lawrence University, and helps coordinate the course. In the summers, and periodically through the school year, Claire assists her husband with his tree and plant health care business, where they regularly need to diagnose pests and diseases of trees.

NOTE: If weather is decent, even if there is light rain, we will go outdoors and walk around the SLU campus. Wear comfortable walking shoes and clothing ap- propriate for the weather. Bring a bottle of water (if you wish).
