At an estimated 1.5 million species, fungi is second only to incests in it’s number and diversity, yet only 5% have been identified. It outnumbers plants by a ratio of 6:1, makes up 25% of the Earth’s biomass, and is the biggest single living organism at 2,220 acres in size, weighing over 6 tons, living in the Malheur National Forest in the Blue Mountains of Oregon.
