Forest Excursion: Fungal Ecologies

What role do fungi play in the forest’s ecosystem? How does their mycorrhizal “wood-wide web” facilitate communication between plants? How do fungi create healthy forest soil? Please join us on a field excursion to the Oslo Marka with mycologist Dabao Sun Lu, Doctoral Research fellow at UiO’s Department of Biosciences.
