Poisonous or not? UBC researcher developing mushroom app
December 1, 2017
A UBC botany professor is working on a new tool to help foragers avoid potentially dangerous mushrooms in the province.
“Mushrooms don’t have a whole lot of characteristics that you can use to distinguish them,” said Mary Berbee as part of a release from the school.
Berbee says the idea for the app is a response to an increased interest in foraging.
