Fungarium is part of the 'Welcome to the Museum' series - a collection of beautifully illustrated, stunningly curated, informative books for all ages.
This museum houses an extraordinary collection of fungi, one of Earth's most fascinating life forms. Marvel at the beautiful colours and incredible shapes of mushrooms and lichens, and peer through microscopes at penicillin. Fungi are sources of food and medicine for humans, but also vital for plant and animal life in most ecosystems. Find out how they evolved, how they reproduce and just how important they are to life on the planet.
This large book with its stunning illustrations would make a great present for any nature lover!
