Soil fungi are hugely diverse, often engage in combative interactions, and can facilitate each other’s growth in complex communities. This talk will highlight the unique molecular mechanisms by which each of these features of fungi influences soil biogeochemistry and how it scales up to affect the function and stability of ecosystems
