We’ve all got our issues with the insect world. They can be pretty annoying –– buzzing, biting and being creepy. But without our invertebrate neighbors, we’d be in serious trouble. They clean up the planet, pollinate the plants, and provide the basis of the food chain that supports all life.
We think of fungi as the bottom of the food chain, the recyclers in the circle of life. But fungi are predators. They feed on life. And there are more out there than we ever knew. As we spread into every corner of planet Earth, they are also discovering us – and that we might be the perfect host.
In order to adapt to different environments, protect themselves from enemies, obtain food, and reproduce, insects have become highly specialized. They transform themselves into completely different creatures, changing their habitat and even food, making insects the most diverse forms of life.
