People involved in the study of Russulales:
Steven Miller is the curator of the Wilhelm Solheim Mycological Herbarium and specializes in the natural history of large fleshy fungi, including aspects of their evolutionary biology, population genetics, biogeography and systematics.
His recent research interest concerns the molecular systematics of fungi in the Russuloid lineage (Basidiomycetes), especially the genera Russula and Lactarius, and a comparative biogeography of these fungi worldwide.
