2018-11: Lutzoni Lab participates in NC Museum of Natural Sciences’ Darwin Day outreach event

Members of the Lutzoni Lab spent the day teaching kids and adults about symbiosis and lichens. Visitors to the museum got a chance to look at lichens under the microscope, see a lichen fluoresce under UV light, and watch as a desiccated lichen thallus was rehydrated. Jigsaw puzzles of Xanthoria and Peltigera entertained younger visitors and gave us visual aids for discussing lichen structure and reproduction. Special thanks to Scott LaGreca for organizing the Lutzoni Lab’s participation in this fun and educational event.
