Daniel Winkler

Daniel Winkler is the author of Field Guides to Edible Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest and California (Harbour Publishing 2011/2012). He grew up collecting and eating wild mushrooms in the Alps and has been foraging for 16 years in the PNW, where he is an active member of PSMS and working as mushroom educator and guide. Daniel trained as a geographer and ecologist and works as researcher and NGO consultant on environmental issues of the Tibetan Plateau and Himalayas (see www.danielwinkler.com). Working in Tibet, Daniel realized that Tibet’s diverse mushroom industry plays a crucial role in rural Tibet and thus has been researching Tibet’s ethno-mycology for 15 years and published widely on the subject, especially on Cordyceps sinensis. With his travel agency MushRoaming LLC he is annually organizing and leading several mushroom focused eco-tours to Tibet and South America www.mushroaming.com
