            Humongous Fungus

            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.

            Finding the Mother Tree: Uncovering the Wisdom and Intelligence of the Forest

            No one has done more to transform our understanding of trees than the world-renowned scientist Suzanne Simard. Now she shares the secrets of a lifetime spent uncovering startling truths about trees: their cooperation, healing capacity, memory, wisdom and sentience. Raised in the ...forests of British Columbia, Simard was working in the forest service when she first discovered how trees communicate underground through an immense web of fungi, at the centre of which lie the Mother Trees: the mysterious, powerful entities that nurture their kin and sustain the forest. Though her ground-breaking findings were initially dismissed and even ridiculed, they are now firmly supported by the data. As her remarkable journey shows us, science is not a realm apart from ordinary life, but deeply connected with our humanity. In Finding the Mother Tree, she reveals how the complex cycle of forest life - on which we rely for our existence - offers profound lessons about resilience and kinship, and must be preserved before it's too late.

            Raised in the hardy forest communities of British Columbia, scientist Suzanne Simard overturned conventional beliefs in proving that trees and plants are connected underground by an immense web of fungal mycelia, at the centre of which lie the Mother Trees: the mysterious, powerf...ul entities that sustain the forest. Finding the Mother Tree is the story of a lifetime spent uncovering startling truths about trees: their perceptions, behaviours, healing capacities, language, memory and wisdom. Simard's landmark work has been immensely influential, revealing the complex cycle of forest life - on which we rely for our existence - and offering profound lessons about resilience and kinship.
