Mycelium Running by Paul Stamets
Mycelium Running

Sher June, January 1, 2010

When research biologist Paul Stamets suggests that fungi can help save the world, he is absolutely serious. In fact, he contends they can rescue it in several different ways. First, there are medicines derived from fungi, probably more than we can imagine. There are fungi for insect pest control. Fungi can absorb and digest toxins from their environments---toxics as diverse as heavy metals, PCB's, oil spills, and radioactivity. Fungal partnerships can revolutionize our farming methods. And we can heal the ecosystems of damaged forest lands by introducing selected fungal species into those environments. Paul Stamets is one of the ecological visionaries of our time. He is revolutionizing the ways we look at fungi.
