The Triumph of the Fungi

A Rotten History

Nicholas P. Money

  • Brings home the impact that fungal diseases have on plants, focusing on the plagues that caused major changes on the environment and humans at all political and economic levels
  • Does a thorough job of gathering little known facts and anecdotes to supplement material that is generally more familiar to students of agruiculture or natural history
  • Reminds us that our future lies in remembering our past; the human culpability behind these plagues is one that humans have not addressed adequately.
  • Illuminates a subject that absolutely needs attention; none of the analogous books in print cover this topic as thoroughly as Money does.
