Paul Stamets: Mushrooms, Bees, and Saving the World

More than any other scientist practicing today, Paul Stamets has dedicated himself to the life of fungi and that of their underground support system, the mycelium. Stamets says that the mycelia are soil magicians that give rise not just to mushrooms but form an integral part of the forest ecosystem. The mycelia are disassemblers, creating the debris fields that then feed their fungal descendants. They also show purpose in choosing microbial allies, and Stamets believes they are part of the earth’s natural internet that is in constant bio-molecular communication, governing the ecosystem. <http://www.fungi.com/>
