From War to Welfare: The Strange Partnerships of Fungi and Plants

Fungi and plants form partnerships that take many different forms.  Some partnerships have developed in ways that seem to benefit the plants.  In other plant/fungi hookups, the fungi appear to be exploiting the plants. Many of these relationships, however, have subtle tit-for-tat interactions between the partners. In this course, four Victoria scientists will lead us through the fascinating interface between the plants and fungi.  When taking a walk through the woods of British Columbia, students who complete this course will look at plants and mushrooms in a new way.

This course consists of five stand-alone sessions: you can register for a single session or receive a discounted rate if you register for the entire series.
