Fantastic Fungi and the Forest Floor
Louie Schwartzberg is perhaps the finest time-lapse nature photographer working today. He’s behind the stunning bee footage that made a quick appearance in my YouTube video about how they see flowers in UV.
Here he talks to mycologist Paul Stamets about the importance of fungi to forest health. When you see a mushroom, you’re looking at the tip of an iceberg, the tiny fruit of an underground fungal web that can stretch over 2,200 acres and live for more than 2,000 years!!
Louie Schwartzberg’s films are available in an iOS app now, for free.
