    Deep within the city of Edinburgh, fungi can be found in a variety of habitats including gardens and parks; however they often pop up in unusual places!  The talk will show examples of various fungi in the city and demonstrate the unique dispersal mechanisms that make fungi so successful in adapting to our constantly-changing environment.   Dr. Patrick Hickey, an independent scientist based at Summerhall, specialises in the biology of fungi and developing new techniques for microscopy and time-lapse imaging. Patrick is a guest lecturer at The University of Edinburgh and is a regular contributor to TV and film documentaries, including the BBC's "The Magic of Mushrooms"  Free for Members, Guest £2
