IOWA CITY, Iowa The University of Iowa Museum
of Natural History will sponsor a program titled "Award Winning Mushroom Photography"
at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 3 in Room 112 of Macbride Hall.
The program, part of the Museum's "Afternoon With
a Scientist" public education and lecture series, will be presented by Nature
photographer and mycologist Dean Abel. Abel will present the winning slides
from the 1999 North American Mycological Association (NAMA) photo contest
recently held in Cape Girardeau, Mo. and offer tips for nature photographers.
Abel, co-author of "A Guide to Kansas Mushrooms," combines his passion for
mycology with photography by serving as chair of the NAMA Photography Committee
