Belowground Interactions in a Changing Environment

Conveners: Omer Falik, BIDR, and Shimon Rachmilevitch, BIDR

The functioning of ecosystems depends on belowground processes, where most terrestrial biodiversity is found including roots, bacteria and fungi, as well as the key ecosystem services of nutrient cycling and carbon storage. Belowground networks facilitate communication and a myriad of mutualistic and antagonistic interactions between different organisms that exchange carbon, water, nutrients and defence signals. The two sessions of Belowground interactions in a changing environment will examine these communications in response to including climate change and desertification.
