The Kingdom - How Fungi Made Our World
Hidden from sight is the Kingdom of Fungi that rules life on land. It’s an alien world with the largest and oldest organisms alive today. It was fungi that made life possible on a barren planet and it was fungi that brought life back to Earth after the last mass extinction event. By looking at fungi in the context of evolution and natural history, scientists are making discoveries that will change our lives. Some fungi will save us, others will threaten us and we are just beginning to understand which is which. This is natural history that matters.
