FOREST MUSHROOMS


 We are all familiar with the great many mushrooms that suddenly appear in the forests in the fall. Although mushrooms only appear for a short time they are an important part of the ecosystem. Mushrooms have essential roles in the forest. They perform many jobs that other living things are not equipped to do. Blewits - Lepista nuda (X)Blewits - Lepista nuda
