Fun Facts About Fungi

Hosted by the Utah State University Intermountain Herbarium

Welcome to the Hidden Kingdom!

We find fungi so fascinating that we wanted to share some fun facts about fungi with you. Fungi both cure and cause disease. They determine what plants grow in your yard and in forests, and keep us from being buried in waste. Some fungi taste great --others can kill you!
