From Another Kingdom: The Amazing World of Fungi
introduces the fungi and their importance in sustaining
all life on Earth. People have had intimate associations
with fungi for millennia. Nevertheless, most of us
are unaware how heavily we rely on fungi in the form
of countless everyday products that use them and
the chemicals they produce.
Fungi have a long history of association with death, decay and dark
malevolent forces. They also cause serious economic loss through
diseases of plant crops in particular. They can easily be cast as the ‘monster’.
Contrary to this negative image fungi are at the heart of crucial ‘life-support’
processes. For example, decomposition releases nutrients for reuse –
fungi really are the ultimate recyclers.
Written for the non-specialist, and making full use of the extraordinary
diversity and beauty of fungi through stunning images, this book provides
a fascinating introduction to a group of organisms whose lifestyle means
they remain largely out of sight, overlooked and forgotten. The reality is
that there is much for which fungi should be thanked.
