Why fungi might actually be magic when it comes to climate change


An eminent scientist is calling for urgent new work to protect and even enhance underground fungal networks that could provide part of the solution to climate change.?Toby Kiers is an evolutionary biologist known for her pioneering research on the flows and architecture of plant fungal networks that store huge amounts of carbon. She says more work must be done to protect existing networks, with the potential to artificially create new ways of sucking up carbon, which could help in the fight against climate change. She joined us for Perspective.
