Worth knowing: The mycelial network of mushrooms – not a large one, but several small ones

Join us for a lunch lecture and hear what science teaches us about the life, diversity and mycelia of mycorrhizal fungi.

The mycorrhizal fungi of our woods are numerous and of great importance. They grow beneath the ground in a mosaic of small and competing mycelia, far from the widespread image of one large connected and communicating network. Welcome to a Worth knowing lecture with

Anders Dahlberg from the Department of Forest Mycology and Plant Pathology.

Soup is served outside the studio from 12.00. The lecture starts at 12.15. Please note that food is not allowed in the Studio.

If you do not have the opportunity to see the lecture on site, it can also be streamed live and watched afterwards on SLU Play.

Worth knowing

Worth knowing is the SLU University Library’s popular science lunchtime lecture series. Here, exciting and recent research results from SLU are presented. We offer a light lunch, and after the lecture listeners have the opportunity to ask questions.
