Wirral Wildlife Meeting
A talk by Professor David Johnson, University of Manchester.
Symbiotic mycorrhizal fungi are found in virtually all of Earth’s terrestrial ecosystems but remain understudied compared to many other groups of organisms. In this talk, Professor Johnson will describe how these soil-borne symbiotic fungi play crucial roles in regulating numerous ecosystem processes through their interactions with plant roots. He will focus on the importance of measuring their diversity and function, their roles in nutrient cycling in natural ecosystems, and in facilitating plant to plant communication.
Admission £3. All welcome.
