Planet of the Fungi
Planet of the FungiThe Secret Life of the World’s Largest Living OrganismJesper Nyström
New research shows that fungi are millions of years older than we first thought. Once spores are airborne, they can start to grow where they fall such as down in the earth’s bedrock or on the sea floor. However, despite the fact that fungi are more closely related to humans than to plants, we know relatively little about them. In many ways, fungi are vital to life itself, yet they can also be our enemy. So, could they help us to safeguard against climate change? Welcome to The Secret World of Fungi, where biologist and science journalist Jesper Nyström takes readers on a journey through the incredible fungi kingdom. After reading this fascinating book, you will never see fungi or mushrooms in the same way again!
