Visualising an Invisable Symbiosis

Uta and collegue Jennifer McGaley published the artical Visualing an Invisable Symbiosis in the journal Plants, People, Planet in Feburary 2021. The short video below was produced alongside the article and features images from Uta's research. The video discusses how it's vital to find a way to show the public the symbioses mycorrhizal fungi form, which are invisible to the naked eye. Being able to visualise these symbioses will help the public to better understand why they are beneficial to plants and should help further conservation efforts and research.
