Deep in the ancient forest mushrooms pop up overnight - the fruiting tip of a fungal network connecting trees running through the soil under your feet.
Set includes 4 x fly agaric and 4 x porcini mushroom notelets.
All inside text is blank. Text on front (bold) and back (regular) as follows:
Fly agaric, Amanita muscaria When Amanita muscaria form mycorrhizal (root-fungi) partnerships with trees, genes are switched on in the fungus that increase its ability to absorb carbohydrates. The tree responds by making more carbohydrates available to the fungus. These genes are only switched on in mycorrhizal partnerships.
Porcini, Boletus edulis Boletus edulis forms mycorrhizal (root-fungi) partnerships with pines and spruces, such as the Scots pine. In exchange for carbohydrates created through photosynthesis the fungus provides the tree with nutrients such as nitrogen it has gathered from the environment.
