Picture of fungal mycorrhizae in soil. When you see a mushroom or any fungus above ground, that is analogous to its fruit. It is not the whole life form, or even most of it. Most of the organism lives underground and often connects with the roots of plants to share resources. Fungi are nature's great organizers.
