The Future is Fungi: How Fungi Can Feed Us, Heal Us, Free Us and Save Our World | Michael Lim & Yun Shu
"Without fungi, the world as we know it would not exist."
Acting as a complete primer to the mycological world, 'The Future is Fungi' brings us all you need to know about the mysterious world of mushroom. With chapters on Food, Medicine, Psychedelics and Environment - this beautiful book attempts to answer all the questions it can about a world we still know so little about. Importantly, it also explores how fungi can be used to transform matter into a diverse set of radical solutions for today's urgent ecological and social issues.
From fungal anatomy and life-cycle to the realms of mycorestoration, mycodesign and mycofabrication - this book will show you how, for over a billion years, fungi have been the architects and alchemists of the natural world, and may well have the capability to be its saviour.
