About the author (1995)

Nancy J. Turner is an ethnobotanist and distinguished professor in the School of Environmental Studies at the University of Victoria. She is also a research associate with the Royal British Columbia Museum.

Adam Szczawinski was fondly known as "the mushroom man" to the thousands of people who flocked to the BC Provincial Museum for mushroom identifications in the years when he was Provincial Botanist, from 1955 to 1975. A vibrant and colourful man, he can truly be characterized as "a mover and shaker" in the world of botany and in the protection of British Columbia's ecosystems
