Staff and students from the Pfister Lab and the Herbaria participated in the 2019 Great Walden BioBlitz on July 6, 2019. The BioBlitz, an event co-sponsored by The Walden Woods Project, Minute Man National Historical Park, and the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation, was held in celebration of Dr. E.O. Wilson’s 90th birthday. The BioBlitz took place within a five-mile radius of Walden Pond. Interesting finds included an orange myxobacteria, a Russula species of mushroom and pleurozium schreberi (moss).
