Fungi often live out of sight, yet makes up the most beautiful and diverse kingdom of organisms that sustain nearly every living thing on the planet. In Entangled Life we dive deeper into how Fungi is the key to understanding our planet, and how we feel and behave. To most fungi is just a mushroom, fruiting bodies homologous like peaches on a tree. Biologist Merlin Sheldrake takes us down the rabbit hole into the world of fungi from psychedelics and thriving fungi that live miles underground, humble yeast, and even those that link plants together in intricate networks affectionately called the "Wood Wide Web".
