MycoRestoration is the practice of engaging with fungi to rescue stressed or damaged ecosystem. Using mycelium for healing of habitats is what Paul Stamets, the world’s leading restorative mycologist, calls MycoRestoration.
The selective use of fungi for MycoRestoration can be implemented in the following ways:
MycoForestry: Using fungi to enhance woodland and forest health and diversity.
MycoFiltration: Using mycelium to catch silt and upstream contamination
MycoRemediation: Adapting selective fungal species to aid the decontamination of polluted environments.
MycoAgriculture: Including the concept of MycoPesticides, using fungi to help control pest populations, MycoAgriculture applies our understanding of fungi to process of adopting agroecological solutions to our food and farming systems.
