The Wider Image: As Chinese mountains get hotter, 'cure-all' fungus dwindles
Ma Junxiao, 49, an ethnic Hui Muslim farmer from remote western China, scans the ground to find cordyceps, a fungus believed to possess aphrodisiac and medicinal powers, on a mountain in the Amne Machin range in China's western Qinghai province, June 8, 2019. Ma has been picking cordyceps in Qinghai for the past 14 years. "The glaciers are gone, and so are the cordyceps," he said. REUTERS/Aly Song SEARCH "CHINA FUNGUS" FOR THIS STORY.
