The Kingdom: How Fungi Made Our World
Friday, 24 May 2019 at 12:10 PM – BMO Sports Lounge
Since the dawn of life, fungi have driven evolution and ruled all life on land, making them both powerful allies and, given the chance, formidable foes.
The Kingdom of Fungi is an alien world with the largest and oldest organisms alive. Fungi made life possible on a barren planet and brought life back to Earth after the last mass extinction. By looking at fungi in the context of evolution and natural history, scientists are making discoveries that will change our lives. Some fungi will save us, others will threaten us and we are just beginning to understand which is which.
THE KINGDOM: HOW FUNGI MADE OUR WORLD is a fascinating evolutionary story of how Fungi shaped all terrestrial life on earth, including us.
