The Rotten World About Us
Ink caps and parasols, stinkhorns and earthstars, death caps and puff-balls appear in season as if by magic. Moulds and mushrooms can frighten us, poison us, annoy us and even eat us -yet fungi also cure, feed and delight us. Not of the plant or animal realms, fungi belong to a third kingdom and their presence as agents of putrefaction and decay is essential to life on this planet.
But how do they live? What are the secrets of their widespread manifestation? Why do some fungi form strange alliances with animals and plants?
