About the talk

In this video, biologist Merlin Sheldrake provides insights into the strong interconnectedness of our ecosystem based on his studies of mycelial and fungal life. He explains that fungi form long-lasting partnerships with other species. Fungi have fostered the domestication of humans, and they may further enhance the future of mankind.

“Fungi have been around for over a billion years of evolution. When we think about these long relationships and the way fungi have shaped so much of life as we know it – creating the conditions for animal life on land, including our own – we can see long imprints of these dynamic relationships.”
