What’s more interesting than a morel? More fabulous than a fruiting body? More likeable than a lichen?
Fungi. That’s what.
It’s no secret we love fungi. We’ve showcased what it’s like to research these microorganisms in our labs. We’ve also shown how beneficial they can be. And how harmful they can be to our health and homes.
This love stems from #FungiFriday. Every Friday on our social media, we showcase the fabulous world of fungi. We search far and wide for the most stunning images our audience take of these incredible microorganisms.
But the best part is, you love fungi too. And you’ve let us know all year! So, as a very special holiday treat, we’re showing off your favourite Fungi Friday posts of 2020.
