Fungi fruit bodies like mushrooms, puffballs, stinkhorns and so forth are a sign that the fungus is in there, working away hidden in the grass, soil and wood. Many fungi are nutrient recyclers, others are symbionts of plants, and a few are parasitic. Join us to find out more about the Wood Wide Web, fungal ecology and how fungi work to keep our bushland healthy.
