Beau Meister (karode13) is a Horticulturist and Mycologist.
After studying Horticulture in New Zealand, Beau took an interest in the unusual fungi that grew in the forests there. So little was known about them and this sparked an interest in fungal taxonomy that has lasted for over 20 years. When not out in the field he can be found in his garden tending to a range of Ethnobotanical plants and flowers.
Beau is also a moderator of the Mushroom Hunting and Identification and the Ethnobotanical Garden forums on Shroomery.org for a decade. As well as an admin for the Victorian Fungi group on Facebook.
