Ali Ashby, from Cambridge University Department of Plant Sciences, will address what is currently known about the co-evolution of plants and fungi, how this facilitated the development of key fungal plant associations, such as the partnership of plants with mycorrhizas and how these associations influence the modern world and could ultimately impact on our future. She will discuss the link between fungi and both the evolution of Orchids and the depletion of the carboniferous coal deposits and why fungi ruled the Earth following the two great extinction events.
