Fungi are the dark matter of biology, typically leading cryptic lives, buried in soil or inside of plants or other organisms, and emerging into the light only when they build their elegantly engineered fruiting bodies. Ecological success across so many niches has required that they solve many challenging fluid mechanical problems of growth, dispersal, and transport of fluids across networks. Study of fungal life histories by fluid mechanicians has shown their exquisite capability for engineering and revealed new organizing ideas for understanding fungal diversity.

Abstract

Fungi are the dark matter of biology, typically leading cryptic lives, buried in soil or inside of plants or other organisms, and emerging into the light only when they build their elegantly engineered fruiting bodies. Ecological success across so many niches has required that they solve many challenging fluid mechanical problems of growth, dispersal, and transport of fluids across networks. Study of fungal life histories by fluid mechanicians has shown their exquisite capability for engineering and revealed new organizing ideas for understanding fungal diversity.
