Sue and others,

According to the web site of The McLaughlin Foundation, Dr. Brodo will be
speaking on the topic "The Algae Takes a Lichen to the Fungus" on Tuesday,
July 19, at 7:00 pm. The web site describes the event as ³Join international
lichen expert, and author of Lichens of North America, Irwin Brodo from the
Canadian Museum of Nature for a look at these beautiful organisms. Members
$10, nonmembers $12.²

What many may not realize is that he will be at the Delta Institute of
Natural History in Bowdoin, ME, for a two-and-a-half-day workshop from
Saturday evening, July 16, through Monday afternoon, July 18. The course fee
is $160, which includes a set of keys that Dr. Brodo has prepared for this
workshop. He recommends that prior to the course, people read the first 100
or so pages in ³Lichens of North America² (i.e., the portion of the book
prior to the keys and species descriptions). If anyone is interested in this
workshop, please contact me directly (NOT by ³reply²ing to this message).
