    The importance of fungi for all aspects of life on Earth and the size of the fungi kingdom, which is six times larger than the kingdom of plant species, makes research in this little studied field crucial: for example, last year a new species of fungi was discovered in Pakistan which is capable of digesting and breaking down plastic; this could be a part of the solution to the global challenge of clearing plastic in oceans and on the land. The Fungi and Lichens website provides technical (but approachable) accounts of the current status of species in the British Isles, including descriptions, images, distribution data, ecology and conservation information. It is aimed at those with a serious interest in fungi, either as natural historians or professional biologists. The project is run by the Mycology Department at Kew Gardens who has just published the 2018 State of the World’s Fungi report.

    Cosmic Shambles creates and curates entertaining content about the universe through science, art, history, philosophy, music, literature and comedy. The site was borne out of The Incomplete Map of Cosmic Genome, Utter Shambles and Book Shambles online magazines. A selection of the content from them is now available for free via Cosmic Shambles, but to access the entire back catalogue, which includes over 160 films, exclusive interviews and contributions from 150 well-known names in science, a paid subscription is needed. The free content in the Cosmic Shambles site is presented in the form of podcasts, documentaries, interviews and several blogs. The range of subjects covered is impressive. For example, neuroscientist Dr Dean Burnett explains differences in taste (why some of us love jazz and other hate it?); the life and work of physicist Richard Feynman is celebrated in the documentary All Genius, All Buffoon: 100 Years of Richard Feynman; there is also an in-depth interview with plastic surgeon Fiona Wood who invented the ‘spray on skin’ for burns victims.
