This is a very interesting article on the spread of Amanita phalloides, the death cap mushroom: https://www.theatlantic.com/science/arc ... da/581602/
It seems that humans have unwittingly helped them spread across the world, as with so many other species. Apparently they actually taste quite good too.

Nice take on how public health crusaders have expanded their remit beyond reasonable limits.
