Mycorrhizal fungi play an essential role in structuring plant communities, and this is particularly true for prairies. In this talk, Dr. Tipton will discuss how mycorrhizal fungi and plants interact, their importance in maintaining prairie plant communities, and how mycorrhizal fungal inoculation can act as a tool in prairie reconstruction.
Cost: free. The webinar will be 45 minutes including questions and answers.
