Plants People Planet Special Issue: Mycorrhizas for a changing world

Plants People Planet is a relatively young journal that launched in 2019. It’s aim is to explore aspects of plant science directly relevant to our daily lives, and how plant science is communicated to the public. The Sept 2021 issue has a focus on mychorrhizas, which it explores through several opinion, review, and research articles. Topics span the communication of mycorrhizal importance, applications of mycorrhizal research to environmental sustainability as well as to medium-sized farms, responses of root-fungal interactions to a warming climate, and many more. Perhaps the most fun and fascinating article from this collection (to me) is the article on Edible mycorrhizal fungi of the world – yum yum.  (Summary by Mary Williams @PlantTeaching) Plants People Planet, Sept. 2021.
