Fungi That You’ve Never Seen [or heard of] Regulate Earth’s Forests

Mark Anthony (Dr. )
We estimate there are 6.5 million fungal species on Earth, with unique life histories and ecological niches. Fungi are master controllers of the Earth system as decomposers, mutualists with trees, and as pathogens and parasites. I will discuss the hidden network of fungi living below ground and connecting tree roots together, mycorrhizal fungi. My findings from across Europe suggest that certain mycorrhizal fungi make trees grow slowly while others rapidly enhance tree growth. I’ll discuss if certain fungi are candidates for biofertilizers that promote tree growth, impacting climate change.
