February 15th Speaker Series Video Available
Ludovic Le Renard's presentation Patterns of Evolution in the Fossil Record of Fungi is now available to MST members to watch on the meetings video page.
Ludovic was born in Saint-Maur-des-Fossés, near Paris. He completed his undergraduate degree in organismal biology and a Masters in interdisciplinary approach to life sciences in France before moving to Vancouver for his PhD. Ludovic completed his PhD at UBC under the supervision of Mary Berbee in 2019, interpreting the fossil record of fly-speck fungi. Now a Postdoctoral Fellow in UBC, he continues to compare the anatomy of live fungi with similar looking fossils to unveil patterns of fungal evolution through geologic time.
