"Mycorrhizal" by Brandon Smart

“MYCORRHIZAL”

Underneath the forest floor, intertwined with the roots of the trees, is a fascinating microscopic network of fungus.

Mycelium are incredibly tiny “threads” of the greater fungal organism that wrap around or bore into tree roots. Taken together, myecelium composes what’s called a “mycorrhizal network,” which connects individual plants together to transfer water, nitrogen, carbon, and other minerals.
