Mycorrhizal fungi connect billions of lives in the soil, bring communications and biochemical transformations to those that need it, and keep green plants healthy and abundant. More abundant than we may have seen for centuries. What’s the big deal with silly silicon? Nature’s been doing an internet for hundreds of millions of years!

Jim Laurie is Bio4Climate’s staff scientist extraordinaire (and a co-founder)

Presented at Climate, Biodiversity, and Survival: Listening to the Voices of Nature conference at Harvard University on November 17-18, 2018
