HIKING GOALS

πŸ‘©β€πŸ³What a day for all of us. Hiking goals in Purkersdorf Natur Park with hubby and daughter. Around the nature park- uphill and downhill. The Purkersdorf Natur Park is easily accessible by car and train, and in addition to several animal enclosures, also has a lookout point or view Deck which is made out of wood.

Hiking goals, looking for wild mushrooms

Looking for mushrooms. We learned something today about mushrooms. From edible one to poisonous one. Biologists actually say that mushrooms are more like animals than plants. If you walk through the forest with common sense, you see trees, shrubs, grasses and mushrooms growing in between, then they also grow upwards like a tree. So you might think that mushrooms are also plants. But then you immediately notice a few differences. Mushrooms cannot. If you put it negatively, they are parasites, just like animals and humans. We don’t get our energy from sunlight, we have to eat; we gain energy by chemically breaking down existing biomass. And this is how the mushroom works it also feeds by breaking down and metabolizing foreign biomass. Either dead plant remains that he gets out of the ground, or he immediately attaches himself to the living plant and enters into a kind of partnership, a symbiosis. But the important thing is that it breaks down foreign biomass, just like animals. Therefore the mushroom is not a plant.
