    Mushroom cultivation courses

    there would have to be a few people around sydney able to help. otherwise at some point i'd be happy to head up to sydney and do something like an intensive one day workshop.

    Aus Mycology Study

    As already mentioned there is no mycology degree offered by any australian universities. but if you look there are some good units around, my recommendation is to focus on majoring in plant science and microbiology, and then specialise. consider doing some genetics, and bioinformatics units, given that microscopy is now fairly old school as we progress towards using dna for identification. University of Tasmania has some good units in mycology, and a fair few researchers doing mycology research there. University of Melbourne seems to also be a good place to study mycology. I recall the sydney university also had some good courses going. Really in therms of what to study you are only limited by your imagination and government funding. and finding a good supervisor. there are so many areas to study, ecological roles of fungi (this is a huge field), natural products and toxicology of fungi if you are interested in chemistry (also huge), using fungi in remediation, as plant pathogens, soil fungi and the role of glomeraceae in agriculture. plenty of opportunities if you are interested in just growing them. my advice is to learn fungi taxonomy as best you can, start cultivating them at home, and mastering cloning on agar and associated skills, see which aspect of mycology takes your interest and then look at a pathway through undergrad.

    Mushroom culture confusion

    Haha. damn thats cheeky. yeah, there is a bit going on like that, people use DNA and BLAST searches incorrectly, and selling species based on incorrect assumptions to increase their profile.
