This was a good intro, and I think will be a good reference throughout my gardening! I had fun reading it, but it may not be accessible to folks not familiar with either a strong biology background or mycology. I feel excited to start experimenting with mycorrhiazae in my own plot and even was made aware of some of my own misconceptions!

I also learned about glomalin for the first time and am excited to talk about it more.

Third book in the series. Brings it all together. Lots of information about the current state of the research. Plenty of information about buying, harvesting or making your own mycorrhizal fungi stash to use in your own garden. It's not just for commercial or research use anymore. The benefits have been proven in many cases. It seems to be a common amendment. Excited to begin rebuilding my soil using these techniques. ...more

Excellent book for a better understanding of how mycorrhizae works to create healthy soil and plants. The first third of the book is very technical and will lose some readers before getting to the more practical information, but I encourage you to stick with the book and you will be rewarded. Casual gardeners may be better served by watching this Growing Your Greens Youtube video that discusses mycorrhizae fungi -- . ...more

I made a promise when I moved in my present home. I will leave the soil healthier than it was when I arrived. Reading every book of this series supplied me with the information I needed. I am a gardener from the soil up.

Liked this book but it had a lot of repetitive information. Learned a lot and will be looking for further information on mycorrhizae.

"Teaming with Fungi" is about using beneficial fungi in crop agriculture, gardening, nurseries, forests, lawns, and hydroponics. The author described the benefits to using mycorrhizae when growing many types of plants and what practices can support or disrupt their growth.

He named specific fungi known to work well with certain plants and described how to best apply them to your plants. He even described how to collect and grow your own if you don't want to buy them, though it looked like a lot o

I could have gained the same or more insight from a couple of Wiki pages. OR a few YouTube videos. OR a single Paul Stamets TED Talk. No, those might contain references. This was vague and repetitive and basic. Vague: p 71 The same process, with "different organisms", "may" impact the intake of "other" nutrients. Repetitive: I believe the amount of useful information contained could be condensed into a few page pamphlet including relevant pictures. Basic: I took a single semester college course ...more
