Merlin Sheldrake eloquently illuminates the intricacy of fungi and the extent to which they are enmeshed in our animal lives.

Stinkhorn mushrooms can break through asphalt. Foxfire is bioluminescent. Fungal spores can change the weather. Even with all our modern advances, science is continually astounded by the alien ingenuity of fungal life.
Merlin Sheldrake is a biologist and a board member of the Fungi Foundation and the Society for the Protection of Underground Networks. In this book, Sheldrake has assembled a lifetime of field study and research to expand our understanding of fungi beyond the common mushroom.
Many ecologists argue that we are now living in the Anthropocene, an epoch in global history where humans dominate the planet. Entangled Life presents a vision for a restorative ecology that acknowledges the autonomy of fungal life and our dependence upon it.
From deep sediments on the seafloor, to the surface of deserts, to frozen valleys in Antarctica, to our guts and orifices, there are few pockets of the globe where fungi can't be found.
