As rainy season advances, mushrooms of countless colors and shapes emerge from logs and the forest floor. These often overlooked organisms serve various functions in the forest. Decomposers par excellence, fungi break down tough molecules in wood (cellulose and lignin), freeing up nutrients for live plants. In addition, they provide habitat and food for many species of insects. Finally, they contribute to the sense of wonder experienced by people walking the paths of the Children’s Eternal Rainforest.
