Sharmin Gamiet

Guest Speaker

Sharmin has been working with fungi for over 25 years, focusing on mushrooms and their relatives found in the Pacific Northwest (BC, Washington and Oregon). She has trained at UBC and the University of Washington using the Friesien species concepts, that is macro and micro morphological, rather than genetic traits, used to group fungi. Sharmin has led mushroom forays throughout the region for many years and enjoys sharing and discussing mushrooms in their habitats.
