Soil health, Fungi, and the Soil Food Web

Mycologist, Dr. Adam Cobb and Soil Biology Pioneer, Dr. Elaine Ingham will be exploring how soil fungi cooperate with plants and other microorganisms in the soil food web; together they support multiple beneficial outcomes in agricultural and natural ecosystems. For example, fungi play key roles in the aggregation of soil, accumulation of carbon, and supply of nutrients to partner plants and trees.
Adam and Elaine will celebrate the diversity of the fungal kingdom, including saprotrophic and mycorrhizal behavior. Ultimately, these amazing relationships promote harmony between plants, animals, land, and humans. If we help create healthy soil ecosystems, fungi, bacteria, protozoa, and nematodes will empower the restoration of earth’s biosphere. Understanding how these biological interactions work is key to supporting soil health.
