Fungal networks.. the O.G. SOcial media
Fungal networks are great underground floor traders moving resources (like phosphorous) between plants and trees, bartering and trading. Sometimes they drive pretty tough deals and scientists now think they may operate with the tried and true “buy low, sell high” mentality.
Motivation for STEM folks (or really anyone who needs it!)
When science meets delicious flat pancakes you get… the perfect crepes! Crepes are simple and delicious but easy to mess up. Novices end up with crepes that are too thin, or too fat or even lumpy. Thankfully scientists have derived the perfect method so this classy brunch item never falls short again.
Kissing lyme goodbye… hopefully
Summer is still in swing… which means we’re stilling spending more time than usual outside…which also means more there are more opportunities to run into a lyme ridden tick. So grab some bug repellent and put your faith in these new scientific developments that may help diagnose lyme disease from the start.
