Mycorrhizal Planet

Michael Phillips

$34.99 Regular price $40.00

Mycorrhizae are defined as fungi that grow in association with the roots of a plant in a symbiotic relationship. They manage the "underground economy," making nutrients available to plant roots, facilitating communication between plants, and even protecting plants against diseases and pest pressures. What's more, they sequester carbon in the soil in much more meaningful ways than any "carbon offsets" humans could ever devise, which means focusing on the health and well-being of these microscopic soil fungi is a crucial climate change solution.

In Mycorrhizal Planet, Phillips explores the complex science of the world beneath our feet in layman's terms - offering insight into how to make plants and their fungal partners prosper. Beyond growers, this book will resonate with anyone who is fascinated with the unseen workings of nature and concerned about maintaining and restoring the health of our soils, our climate, and the quality of life on Earth for generations to come.

In depth book on soil

After attending a conference where Michael spoke, I knew I had to get this book. Really gets into the nuts and bolts of what is going on in the soil and how plants thrive or not.
