Mapping, Protecting and Harnessing the Mycorrhizal Networks that Sustain Life on Earth
Merlin Sheldrake and Toby Kiers in Conversation
In this session, two leading researchers seeking to understand the critically important but long overlooked and understudied role of fungal networks in supporting life and regulating climate will discuss their work with the groundbreaking, visionary Society for the Protection of Underground Networks (SPUN), an organization at the forefront of studying and protecting fungal networks all over the world and driving innovation in underground climate and biodiversity science. With: biologist Merlin Sheldrake, Ph.D., author of Entangled Life: How Fungi Make our World; and Toby Kiers, Ph.D., Professor of Evolutionary Biology and Executive Director and Chief Scientist at SPUN. Moderated by J.P. Harpignies, senior producer, Bioneers Conference.
