In a world that is facing the challenges of climate change, habitat destruction, disease, and ensuring food and fuel security, our need for practical solutions becomes greater every day.
Plants and fungi are critical to our survival. Not only for food, fuel, shelter and medicines, but also for regulating our climate and the environment that we live in.
