Paul Stamets and mycoremediation

Reality Sandwich, a new online venture started by Daniel Pinchbeck and others (quite interesting in its own right), reminds us of the power of mushrooms and their mycelia by discussing the work of Paul Stamets (Fungi Perfecti). Beyond their use as powerful medicines, mushrooms have the ability to decontaminate sites polluted with hydrocarbons and other toxins. For a more complete discussion, and if you have an hour to spare, check out this fascinating lecture Paul gave in 1999.
