The popular workshop series on computational skills and biodiversity informatics from the GGBC starts in 2020 with a completely new course, taught by Ferran Sayol at the University of Gothenburg.
In and around the roots of the trees are fungi and bacteria living in symbiosis with the trees, exchanging nutrients for carbon. An effort to map the most common symbiosis types - based on data from more than 1.1 million specimens and 28,000 tree species - has revealed factors that determine where different types of mycorrhizae and nitrogen-fixing bacteria will thrive. The work can help researchers understand how symbiosis shapes the world's forests and how they can be affected by a warmer climate.
The popular workshops series on computational skills and biodiversity informatics from the GGBC is back after the summer break with new and exciting topics for this autumn.
