Entangled Life: How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds and Shape Our Futures
When we think of fungi, we likely think of mushrooms. But mushrooms are only fruiting bodies, analogous to apples on an underground tree. most fungi live out of sight and are easy to miss yet make up a massively diverse kingdom of organisms that support and sustain nearly all living systems. The more we learn about fungi, the less makes sense without them.
Merlin Sheldrake's exploration of this astonishing kingdom of life reveals how fungi-and our relationships with them- are changing our understanding of how the world works. Bringing to light science's latest discoveries, he points us toward the fundamental questions that fungi provoke about the nature of life, intelligence, and identity.
