Happy Holidays from CHIP

The image above is courtesy of Stephanie Mounaud at the J. Craig Venter Institute. The fungi represented include Aspergillus nidulans (tree), Penicillium marneffei (red ornaments), and Aspergillus terreus (trunk). For more enjoyable holiday images made of fungi, check out her post here.

For a less festive take on Kingdom Fungi, see this recent Slate piece. As I used to tell the medical students when I gave my annual series of mycology lectures, “the fungi have their own Kingdom--we just live in it.”
