“Dr. Seri Robinson, associate professor of wood anatomy at Oregon State University, discussed the ancient art and modern science of spalting - the process by which a select group of wood decay fungi color wood. Spalted wood has been used in Western European marquetry for centuries and is a common component in modern woodworking. The unique nature of the fungal pigments have also found relevance in science, from solar cells to textile dyes. Join Dr. Robinson on a six hundred year journey from ancient art to modern scientific marvel via an understudied and under appreciated group of fungi—the elusive spalting fungi.”
