Fungi and Plants: A Love-Hate Relationship (April 28, 7-8pm)
Jacob Golan
Plant Protection Intern, Morris Arboretum

Fungi are some of the most overlooked organisms, despite making up 25% of the world's biomass, being a major workhorse in most functioning ecosystems, and having an estimated 1.5 to 5 million species on Earth. Fungi are also remarkable for their interconnectedness with other life forms, from beneficial symbioses to deadly pathogen attacks. This lecture will focus on the interrelationships between fungi and plants by exploring the unique natural history and ecology of fungi. We will discover how fungi are present in our everyday life, from issues in sustainable agriculture to renewable energy and even home gardening.
