The Fourth Kingdom - Fungi

12 Aug 2020 12:26AM   Views : 335 Unique : 212

The fungi that we see above ground are actually the fruiting bodies, growing from a huge mycelium that spans vast tracts under the earth. Given any woodland, it will contain a greater weight of fungi than trees. We missed Fungalpunk Dave's fungi walk at Arley Hall this last time, but hopefully we'll catch another of them sometimes soon. Later in the year is the best time. There are some fantastic displays of fungi all over the Arley Hall estate, so iot's worth taking the walk to learn to see what is actually there.

Here was our guide a couple of years back, the one and only Fungalpunk Dave.

And a nice selection from the hundreds of species that are at Arley Hall.

The Fourth Kingdom, by the way, refers to the fact that fungi do not belong to the main groupings of plants and animals. They are what they are, quite unique.
