Fungi are vital to all life on Earth, from nutrient recycling, to the food (blue
cheese) and drink(wine) we consume. They partner with plants to survive.
Fungi break down organic matter, releasing carbon, oxygen and nitrogen.
They include an incredible variety of mushrooms, yeast, mildews, molds and
slime molds. The Humongous Fungus is the largest living thing on Earth. Fungi
also cause and cure disease. We can have fun exploring the fungus among
us!
