Here, in Spain we have some of the best examples of how the idea eco-development
becomes reality. One of them is the ecological harvest of fungi products using
common sense. What do you say about harvesting tuber melanosporum in quercus
forest?. This fungi fruit is ecological-harvested, is a rich resource that the
people of the productive zone preserve more than other natural sources. And
protecting the fungi resource, the fungi and the forest are preserve too. You
must see how people of litle villages DO REAL ECOLOGY. Furthermore to fungi
harvest in this mature and big forest is the treasure and the secret of its
variety and its conservation.We have also some of the best conservated forest of
europe and,..is incredible but fungi, in these forest, are right-harvested, some
CENTURIES AGO,during this centuries fungi not only preserve its ecological role
in the forest but even spread its area.I am speaking for example about basque
forest and Calocibe gambosa. So who is short-sighted?, of course i was speaking
about a good ecological resource, but maybe my Englihs is not good enough!
