I had a lovely conversation with Colin Orpin the other evening – he was delighted to hear about our network and that anaerobic fungal research is still alive and kicking!
For those of you not familiar with the name, Colin Orpin is the researcher who conducted much of the ground breaking work in the 1960s/70s which led to the acceptance of the existence of anaerobic fungi despite the widely accepted dogma of the time that fungi needed oxygen.
