Mycorrhizal fungi, Ohio trees and shrubs
Fungi are not random occurrences, but have evolved over millions of years. The relationship between native fungi and Ohio's trees and shrubs roots deep and is much more than what appears on the surface. The mushroom is the above ground fungal body that produces and disperses the spores. That very structure is made of interwoven, tightly packed, filamentous hyphae.
