內容簡介

  一場令人目眩神祕、意想不到的驚奇探索之旅,目的地是:真菌的世界!

  肉眼看不見的神秘世界,隱藏在我們的視野之中,卻構成了一個廣泛多樣的生物王國,足以支持和維繫幾乎所有的生物系統。

  才華洋溢的生物學家Merlin Sheldrake在此書中為我們解構真菌的世界,如果你想到真菌就是菇類,那可就大大低估了這個微小又重要的系統構造。透過作者不同視角的分析,不論是做麵包的酵母、埋藏在地下數英里的真菌、串連植物的網絡(稱之為木網)或是入侵昆蟲體內操控的寄生菌種,都將真菌的豐富性表露無遺。

  真菌是生命的新陳代謝大師、地球製造者和關鍵角色,它們是治癒我們的身體,改變我們的思考方式,甚至是成為補救環境災難的解方。Merlin Sheldrake

  揭示了這些不平凡的生物的存在與運行方式,並讓我們透過人類與生物鍊的關係,真正改變我們對生命運作方式的理解。(文/博客來編譯)

A mind-bending journey into the hidden world of fungi that will change your understanding of life on earth

"A dazzling, vibrant, vision-changing book . . . I ended it wonderstruck at the fungal world--the secrets of which modern science is only now beginning to fathom."--Robert Macfarlane, author of Underland

When we think of fungi, we likely think of mushrooms. But mushrooms are only fruiting bodies, analogous to apples on a tree. Most fungi live out of sight, yet make up a massively diverse kingdom of organisms that supports and sustains nearly all living systems. Fungi provide a key to understanding the planet on which we live, and the ways we think, feel, and behave.

In Entangled Life, the brilliant young biologist Merlin Sheldrake shows us the world from a fungal point of view, providing an exhilarating change of perspective. Sheldrake's vivid exploration takes us from yeast to psychedelics, to the fungi that range for miles underground and are the largest organisms on the planet, to those that link plants together in complex networks known as the "Wood Wide Web," to those that infiltrate and manipulate insect bodies with devastating precision.

Fungi throw our concepts of individuality and even intelligence into question. They are metabolic masters, earth makers, and key players in most of life's processes. They can change our minds, heal our bodies, and even help us remediate environmental disaster. By examining fungi on their own terms, Sheldrake reveals how these extraordinary organisms--and our relationships with them--are changing our understanding of how life works.
