Publisher Comments:

Fungi are a distinct kingdom, separate from the plants and animals, bacteria and protists. They are everpresentwe inhale them with almost every breathand without them the recycling of the Earths nutrients would be impossible. Yet despite their ubiquitous nature, they are poorly understood. Roy Watling sheds new light on these amazing creatures, explaining why they are so unique and how they live their lives.

Coverage includes such topics as the importance of fungi to the larger ecosystem, the collection and preservation of specimens, and the scourge of "dry rot" in houses. Watling is a mycologist with the Royal Botanical Garden in Edinburgh.
