    Portraits of Endophytes: The Cryptic Lives of Fungi Within The Leaves Of Trees
    Virtually all healthy leaves are colonized by fungi that are collectively called endophytes. These fungi are very diverse and include species with complex life histories and a bewildering range of plant hosts. Similar to the human microbiome, endophytes may have a profound effect on plant health, influencing resistance to a variety of stresses such as drought, soil toxicity, and even insect and pathogen attack. This meandering presentation by Joey Tanney will provide insight into the identification and natural history of these ubiquitous yet mysterious fungi — and guarantee that your walks in the forest will never be the same.
