Yet, without them we wouldnt have bread, alcohol, cheese, tofu, or the unique flavors of mushrooms, morels, and truffles. We cant survive without fungi.The Kingdom Fungi provides a comprehensive look at the biology, structure, and morphological diversity of these necessary organisms.

It sheds light on their ecologically important roles in nature, their fascinating relationships with people, plants, and animals, and their practical applications in the manufacture of food, beverages, and pharmaceuticals. The book includes information about true fungi, fungus-like creatures (slime molds and water molds), and a group of composite organisms (lichens) that are more than just fungi.
