In the mid 00’s he taught himself how to grow gourmet fungi and began applying these skills to fungi conservation, in the process deciding to pursue mycology professionally. He did his Bachelor of Science at the University of Tasmania, and a Master of Science at the University of Melbourne where his research project was based around Conservation Mycology. In addition to fungi, he has had a long term interest in ethnobotany, ethnobotanical literature, and growing medicinal plants - in particular Cacti and Acacias.

Caine posts regularly onLinkedIn and his Instagram, @guerrillamycology, sharing adventures from cultivation, foraging, and ethnomycology, to interesting observations from his home lab.
