            Inhabiting a whole kingdom of their own, fungi can be found in every ecosystem. They carpet the forest floor, and hidden fungi decompose matter, feed plants, and affect how animals function. Their beautiful mushrooms come in all colours, shapes, and sizes. Fungal stories include ...the greening of the Earth, when fungi helped plants first grow on land, and the mass destruction of crops through fungal disease. From the villains of the upcoming bananageddon to plastic-eating eco-warriors, there are over 1.5 million fungus species, and a huge, unknown number of unnamed dark types. They affect other creatures, too, for example by helping to break down food, or controlling their minds against their will. Following on from the gorgeous Under Your Feet, and touching on similar topics of conservation and the secret processes within ecosystems, this book of fabulous fungi will intrigue and amaze young readers.

            Breaking Boundaries: The Science of Our Planet
             

            Breaking Boundaries: The Science of Our Planet (Hardback)

            By Rockstroem, Johan; Gaffney, Owen; Foreword by Thunberg, Greta

            • RRP: $33.01
            • $33.01
            • Internationally sourced

            Advisors who guided David Attenborough's Our Planet now reveal the full scale of the climate emergency we face, along with the positive message that if we act, we can stabilize Earth's life support system. To accompany the Netflix documentary Breaking Boundaries: The science behi...nd Our Planet , this high-impact book, written by leading climate change experts, explains the greatest crisis humanity has ever faced. The story is accompanied by unique visualizations of Earth produced by Globaia, the world's leading visualizers of human impact. The authors explain that in 2009, scientists identified nine planetary boundaries that keep Earth stable, ranging from biodiversity to ozone. Beyond these boundaries lurk tipping points. In order to stop short of these tipping points, the 2020s must see the fastest economic transition in history. This book demonstrates how societies are reaching positive tipping points that make this transition possible: groups such as Extinction Rebellion and the schoolchildren led by Greta Thunberg demand political action; countries are committing to eliminating greenhouse gas emissions; and one tipping point has even already passed - the price of clean energy has dropped below that of fossil fuels. At the brink of a critical moment in history, this essential book presents a vision of Planetary Stewardship based on a new understanding of our rainforests, ice sheets, oceans, atmosphere, and rich diversity of life.
