A major new publication from the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) and IUCN addresses the question "Priceless or Worthless?" concerning some of the globe's most endangered species. A list of 100 species is used as examples of likely extinctions unless humans intervene. And included among the 100 - as a world first - is a FUNGUS! At last - recognition at global level that fungi can be threatened too!
