CBS Biodiversity Series 9
Keith Seifert has been with the Mycology Group of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Ottawa, since 1990, after completing his Ph.D at CBS in 1985, and spending four years with Forintek Canada, Corp., in Ottawa. He is a specialist on synnematous hyphomycetes and the mycotoxigenic genera Fusarium and Penicillium, has published more than 150 papers on the tax-onomy of hyphomycetes, and is past chair of the International Commission on the Taxonomy of Fungi. He lives in a log house in a forest, where he throws Frisbees for dogs, and strums gui-tars. Dedicated with love to Charlene.
Walter Gams recently retired from the CBS after 40 years studying the little-differentiated step-children of fungal taxon-omy: the zygomycete genera Mortierella and Umbelopsis, and acremonium-like and verticillium-like hyphomycetes. He was secretary of the nomenclatural Committee for Fungi for sev-eral years and still defends dual nomenclature. He is a coauthor of the well-known identification manual Compendium of Soil Fungi, and is an author of several hundred scientific papers. He teaches mycology as Professor at the Technical University in Aachen (Germany). He collaborates with many international colleagues, and is a patron of art and music, dividing his time between Baarn, the Netherlands, and his own segment of the medieval castle of Bomarzo, Italy.
Bryce Kendrick retired as a professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Waterloo in 1994, after an active career as a teacher and researcher. Equally well known for his textbook The Fifth Kingdom, and his Kananaskis conference proceedings (Taxonomy of the Fungi Imperfecti and The Whole Fungus), Bryce was also an author of the Carmichael et al. pro-genitor of this book and about 300 other mycological publica-tions. He is now Principal of Mycologue Publications, based on Vancouver Island, and devotes much of his energy to environ-mental causes. Dedicated with love to Laurie.
Gareth Morgan-Jones has been a tenured faculty member at Auburn University, Alabama, USA, for 38 years, holding the rank and title of Distinguished University Professor since 1994. Educated at the Universities of Wales and Nottingham, Eng-land, he previously held positions at the former Biosystematics Research Institute, Ottawa, and the Commonwealth Mycologi-cal Institute, Kew. He has published widely on the taxonomy of both coelomycetes and hyphomycetes, authoring or co-authoring over 250 papers. His avocations include cultivating his two-acre woodland garden, tending his bonsai collection, and breeding, exhibiting and judging pedigreed dogs, for which he is approved by the American Kennel Club.
