the forest in the tree; how fungi shape the earth

Alisa Wild

This is a story about trees and fungi and how they're connected through a 'wood wide web' - told by one tiny fungal spore.

A little fungus meets a baby cacao tree and they learn to feed each other. They cooperate with a forest of plants and a metropolis of microbes in the soil.

But when a drought strikes can they work together to survive?

This science-adventure story explores the Earth-shaping partnerships between plants, fungi, and bacteria, a beautifully-illustrated science-adventure story, created in collaboration with scientists.
