The public is invited to a program focused on
the major types of mycorrhizae, including specific host-fungus pairings,
their anatomy, and how they help feed the host plants, presented by Larry
Littlefield.

Larry Littlefield is a retired Professor of Plant Pathology at North Dakota
State University and Oklahoma State University, where he conducted field
and laboratory research and taught plant pathology and mycology. His
presentation will be on the anatomy and biology of fungal mycorrhizae in a
wide range of plants. Larry is also an accomplished photographer and
