Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save The World
“There are more species of fungi, bacteria, and protozoa in a single scoop of soil than there are plants and vertebrate animals in all of North America”
“This book is a manual for the mycological rescue of the planet […] Linking mushroom cultivation, permaculture, ecoforestry, bioremediation and soil enhancement.”
Four components of mycorestoration are described in detail:
Mycofiltration: the filtration of biological and chemical pathogens as well as controlling erosion.
Mycoforestry and mycogardening: the use of mycelium for companion cultivation for the benefit and protection of plants.
Mycoremediation: the use of mycelium for decomposing toxic wastes and pollutants.
Mycopesticides: the use of mycelium for attracting and controlling insect populations.
