Bart + fungi

Bart Heijne, Crop Protection researcher at PPO Fruit Randwijk

'The taste and smell can be very distinctive'
For a mycologist like Bart Heijne, October was heaven. Lots of nice walks in the woods to look for fungi and identify them. On his own or with fellow mycophiles in the field biology organization KNNV. The range is big enough, with a good 5000 species of fungus in the Netherlands. He looks, feels, smells and tastes. 'Only tasting, not eating.' On the photo, from front to back: the maze-gill fungus, the common bonnet and the sulphur tuft. RK
