A fungus is neither plant nor animal.
It thrives among the roots of trees, occasionally saying “hello” above ground in the form of a fruit, or mushroom.
The morel is a common edible mushroom found in North American hardwood forests. It might also appear in your backyard garden.
Hunting truffles takes patience. They live entirely below ground.
In 1928, Scottish microbiologist Alexander Fleming left for holiday without tidying up. He returned to observe the reaction of staph bacteria to penicillin mold.
When hunting truffles in France, pray to St. Anthony. In Italy, a dog might prove more useful.
