People involved in the study of Russulales:
Jorinde Nuytinck (b. 1978) studied the complex group of Lactarius deliciosus for her PhD. She is currently working as an assistant professor at the mycology lab of Mieke Verbeken and combines a morphological and molecular approach to study the species delimitations and phylogenetic relationships in the genus Lactarius. Bird watching is another passion of this young mycologist.
