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.”
