Born in the oceans possibly 2.4 billion years ago, fungi can be parasites, symbiotic partners or recyclers. Without them, plant debris would accumulate all over the planet, carbon dioxide would disappear from the atmosphere and life would cease to exist. Indispensable to humans for bread, beer or penicillin, for example, they are now the focus of study by human health researchers and for the development of second generation fuels. It is this fabulous odyssey as well as the most recent scientific discoveries that the authors describe in this book that will seduce readers ranging from simple mushroom pickers to experienced mycologists.
