Dunn Woods Memories

Dunn Woods, Natural Heart of IU

Mushrooms

Fungi are an important link in the chain of life, and there are quite a few varieties in Dunn Woods. Recent studies show that plants communicate with each other through the mycorrhizal network that underlies the forest floor.
Below are a few that I have found, and in some cases, identified. If you have any clues about the unidentified mushrooms, please let me know.
