"Fungi are fundamental to all life on Earth. Their natural networks help plants live and grow; as medicine, they save lives; and in the kitchen, they put the fizz in champagne and the flavor in chocolate. But what are fungi? And how do they affect plants, animals, and humans? By feeding many animals and connecting plants, fungi are essential for ecosystems to thrive, playing a crucial role in maintaining life as we know it. With huge potential for use in everyday products and processes -- in food, health, materials, and the environment -- fungi are vital for a more sustainable future. Get closer to around 300 species of mushrooms, lichens, and other fungi, and find out the hidden secrets of mycelium. Expert information and beautiful illustrations reveal that fungi are present everywhere, from forests to deserts. Step inside the fascinating world of fungi to discover a kingdom that hides in plain sight.""-from back cover.
