Mycelium Running is a manual for the mycological rescue of the planet. Growing mushrooms may be the best thing we can do to save the environment. In this groundbreaking text from mushroom expert Paul Stamets, you will find out how.

The basic science goes like this: Microscopic cells called mycelium, the fruit of which are mushrooms, recycle carbon, nitrogen, and other essential elements as they break down plant and animal debris in the creation of rich new soil. What Stamets has discovered is that we can capitalize on mycelium's digestive power and target it to decompose toxic wastes and pollutants (mycoremediation), catch and reduce silt from stream beds and pathogens from agricultural watersheds (mycofiltration), control insect populations (mycopesticides), and generally enhance the health of our forests and gardens (mycoforestry and myco-gardening).
