Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan (born 1941) English botanist and author, born in Lancashire, England, UK.

A graduate of London University majoring in natural sciences, Jordan is a specialist in the field of mycology, and has authored over a dozen titles on fungi and mushrooms. He later became a presenter of wildlife programmes for BBC Television in the 1980s. Due to the increasing popularity of hunting edible mushrooms, Jordan founded the Association of British Fungal Groups (ABFG) in 1996, which keeps a database on fungus in the UK. During the 1990s, Jordan's interest focussed to writing non-fiction literature on ancient religions and cults.
