Neither plant nor animal, they are found in the earth, the air and our bodies. They can be microscopic, yet also account for the largest organisms ever recorded. In giving us bread, alcohol and life-saving medicines, they have shaped human history; they can digest plastic and explosives; and the discovery that they connect plants through the ‘Wood Wide Web' is transforming the way we understand ecosystems. Over ninety percent of their species remain undocumented. Yet the more we learn about fungi, the less makes sense without them.
