Author Biography

Elizabeth "Izzie" Gall graduated from Tufts University in 2015 with a plant biology degree and a fierce passion for mycology. As an intern at the New York Botanical Garden, she founded Morel Dilemma, a podcast intended to impart her love of fungi to listeners of diverse backgrounds. After the internship ended, Izzie worked as a laboratory technician at New York University but continued the podcast, researching and producing episodes about mushroom cultivation, mycorrhizal relationships, foraging practices and safety, and fungi in the fossil record, among other topics. In 2017, Izzie attended graduate school in mycology and plant pathology at Michigan State University before returning to outreach. She is delighted to bring readers of all levels to a deeper understanding of fungi and their utility in natural and agricultural spaces. Izzie currently lives in Knoxville, Tennessee, U.S.A. with her husband Nate.

He is also Head of the Laboratory of Crop Science (Life Sciences Department) and Head of the Laboratory of Tree Fruits and Aromatic Crops (Biotechnology Centre), and coordinator of the graduate agriculture programmes. His main research areas focus on the environmental stresses on the physiology and biochemistry of crops including pre- and postharvest metabolism, and the metabolome. Prof. N. Benkeblia has an extensive research (more than 30 years) experience in horticultural sciences, and teaching at undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate levels in many countries. Prof. N. Benkeblia published over 230 publications including books, chapters and research papers. His is member of many international scientific societies NGO, and was recipient of many awards.
