I have a question re: the release of spores from weather balloons and 
other means of distribution. Are you concerned about the issue of invasive 
species? We're fascinated by mycological environments, and at least in 
some areas, this seems to be an issue. Mycelium spread of their own 
accord; there's competition among species. At the moment, with some more 
visible forms of life such as phragmites (which can also be considered 
networked), there are serious issues of native or local species going
extinct. Do you worry that articial spore releases can contribute to 
this? Is this addressed?

Thanks greatly, Alan
