This morning's chanterelles

This morning's chanterelles
Chanterelles are ectomycorrhizal. Mycorrhizal fungi grow in a mutually beneficial, or
symbiotic, association with the root tips of green plants. Ectomycorrhizal fungi are a
subset of mycorrhizal fungi that form sheaths over the root tips of certain trees and
shrubs.. Because chanterelles obtain their carbohydrate nutrition from living trees
through this symbiotic association, forests are essential to their survival and productivity.
