Hi! Here's your News Capsule

Illustrated book about fungus available from APS Press
According to mycologist, author, and artist Miguel Ulloa, “The best way to understand and remember scientific names is to understand their component parts or roots.” This philosophy underlies Illustrated Generic Names of Fungi: Etymology, Descriptions, Classifications, and References—a unique combination of scientific and artistic content with 1,000-plus original watercolors (by Ulloa) and 1,700 descriptions of genera. This exquisitely illustrated and up-to-date reference is the first of its kind published in English. An indispensable resource for mycologists, Illustrated Generic Names of Fungi is available through the APS PRESS bookstore.

Why do I care about APS Foundation? Because I believe that engagement in APS is critical to the future and the promise of our profession. I care deeply about the future pipeline of graduate students. I want them to have every opportunity to be involved in APS. That’s not going to happen unless the society is visible to them, and that’s where APS Foundation comes into the picture. We must engage both undergraduate and graduate students. I know how much APS helped me and my career. I can’t imagine our profession without it.
