We need to start finding ways to help nature heal itself and us. This book is a great introduction on how fungi can do just that.

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.

Wow! I am ready to join-up in the race to save the world. Already fascinated by the incredible variety of mushrooms I have encountered and being an edible mushroom hunter, Paul Stamets has amazed me with newfound knowledge of the power and importance of this ubiquitous life-form. I believe he has the answer.

Product details 356 pages Ten Speed Press - English 9781580085793 Reviews:
"Synopsis" by , Mycelium Running is a manual for the mycological rescue of the planet. That’s right: growing more mushrooms may be the best thing we can do to save the environment, and in this groundbreaking text from mushroom expert Paul Stamets, you’ll find out how.


The basic science goes like this: Microscopic cells called “mycelium”--the fruit of which are mushrooms--recycle carbon, nitrogen, and other essential elements as they break down plant and animal debris in the creation of rich new soil. What Stamets has discovered is that we can capitalize on mycelium’s digestive power and target it to decompose toxic wastes and pollutants (mycoremediation), catch and reduce silt from streambeds and pathogens from agricultural watersheds (mycofiltration), control insect populations (mycopesticides), and generally enhance the health of our forests and gardens (mycoforestry and myco-gardening).


In this comprehensive guide, you’ll find chapters detailing each of these four exciting branches of what Stamets has coined “mycorestoration,” as well as chapters on the medicinal and nutritional properties of mushrooms, inoculation methods, log and stump culture, and species selection for various environmental purposes. Heavily referenced and beautifully illustrated, this book is destined to be a classic reference for bemushroomed generations to come.
