Oct. 17, 2016: AGM & Kem Luther - "What does it MEAN? mycorrhizas, mushrooms, and plants"

...
The Comox Valley Horticultural Society welcomes guest speaker Kem Luther to their October 17 Annual General meeting. The guest presentation will follow the AGM.
Kem Luther
In his recent book, Boundary Layer (Oregon State University Press, 2016), Kem Luther focuses on regions that lie between large, stable systems, showing how they develop their own rules and practice a logic that belongs to neither of the bounding systems. One of the in-between systems discussed in his book is the strange world of plant/fungal symbionts.
In this slide talk, Kem overviews the science of mycorrhizal mushrooms and explores how research on mycorrhizas could shift our understanding species and ecosystems in the Pacific Northwest.
Kem Luther grew up in the Nebraska Sandhills, studied at Cornell, the University of Chicago (PhD) and University of Toronto (MSc). He taught at Eastern Mennonite University; Sheridan College where he was dean of a joint program in Communication, Culture, and Information Technology with the University of Toronto; at York University; and the University of Toronto.
After living for several years on Ontario's Grand River, the naturalist/writer moved to the southern tip of Vancouver Island in 2004. For the last two decades, Kem has focused on writing interpretive articles and books. He is the author of Cottonwood Roots, The Next Generation Gap, and Boundary Layer.

Kem Luther

...
Kem Luther
Kem Luther is an American/Canadian who has lived in Nebraska, Illinois, Wisconsin, Virginia, Ontario and British Columbia. He currently lives in a rural area of Vancouver Island, and is the husband of Jeanne, a vocal musician and early childhood music specialist. Kem and Jeanne have two grown daughters.
Education and Employment
Kem spent the first part of his working life teaching philosophy. He was on the faculty of Eastern Mennonite University in Harrisonburg, Virginia, for five years. He moved to Canada, his wife's native country, in 1981. In Canada he taught computer science at Sheridan College, the University of Toronto, and York University. Kem was Sheridan's dean of a joint program with the University of Toronto called Communication, Cutlure and Information Technology. The program now enrols more than a thousand students.
Kem has spent WAY too much time going to school--he was a student at one school or another for forty years. He began his postsecondary studies with a B.A. in classics at Loyola University in Chicago and an M.A. in philosophy of religion at Trinity Divinity School. Then he did a Ph.D. in philosophy at the University of Chicago, working on the German philosopher G.F.W. Hegel. While he was teaching computer science in Canada he began another degree sequence, starting with an undergraduate degree in computer science at York University in Toronto. He did a M.Sc. and the classwork for a Ph.D. in computer science (computational linguistics) at the University of Toronto.
...
For the last few years Kem has been working on book about American generation gaps. The Next Generation Gap will appear in the first quarter of 2009.
Interests
Kem continues the genealogical research that he wrote about in Cottonwood Roots. He posts almost all of his genealogical work on the web--at his genealogical web site you can see some of this work. In the last dozen years he has managed to find out a bit more about the Ebenezer Luther that he wrote about in Cottonwood Roots .
Kem is an amateur naturalist and spends a lot of time walking in wilderness areas around his Vancouver Island home. Many of his essays are on natural history topics.
