Calling all mycologists in Europe!
What/where are, in your opinion, Europe's most spectacular fungi?
What fungi or fungi-facts are guaranteed to make the lay-person sit up
and say "thats amazing!"?
I'm researching a television series on the natural history of Europe
and, whilst the programmes will probably be dominated by mammals and
birds (thats what the viewers want, I'm afraid!), I don't want to ignore
groups such as fungi. But, to get airtime, the fungi have got to appeal
to a general audience - they have to be visually stunning or have a very
interesting life-history (preferably both!)
So what species do you reccomend and why? And where can I find them?
Any stories about the interaction between people and fungi, in the past
and the present, would also be particularly welcome.
