The allure of fungi.

The allure of fungi. Alison Pouliot.
The allure of fungi.

Melbourne: CSIRO Publishing, 2018. Octavo, paperback, colour photographs.

An interdisciplinary exploration of fungi, showcasing stunning photographs.

Presents fungi through multiple perspectives – those of mycologists and ecologists, foragers and forayers, naturalists and farmers, aesthetes and artists, philosophers and Traditional Owners. It explores how a history of entrenched fears and misconceptions about fungi has led to their near absence in Australian ecological consciousness and biodiversity conservation.

Through a combination of text and visual essays, the author reflects on how aesthetic, sensate experience deepened by scientific knowledge offers the best chance for understanding fungi, the forest and human interactions with them.
