Underground Lovers – Encounters with Fungi
‘In the gloom of the forest floor, fallen branches are sheathed with fungal stripes of yellow and purple. But beneath the colourful surface, the fallen litter is alive with the clandestine workings of fungi.’
What can we learn from the lives of fungi? Underground Lovers brings us to our knees, magnifier in hand, to find out.
In Underground Lovers, Alison Pouliot reaches down to earth, and deeper, to dwell with fungal allies and aliens, discover how fungi hold forests together, and why humans are deeply entwined with these unruly renegades of the subterrain. Told through first-hand stories — from the Australian desert to Iceland’s glaciers to America’s Cascade Mountains — Alison shares encounters with glowing ghost fungi and unearths the enigma of the lobster mushroom.
