      In addition, she’s started a collection of native plant endophytes — the fungi and bacteria that live on plants and may provide them with beneficial services, much like human gut microflora. So far she’s preserved different fungi. She dreams of one day expanding her collection to include species of fungi from the entire Appalachian range.   — Bacteria, fungi and plants sometimes produce metal-binding substances that can be harnessed, for example for the extraction of raw .

Plants play a vital role in supporting other wildlife, providing essential elements such as food, water, oxygen, and habitat. Many living things take up residence in or on plants, including birds, mammals, amphibians, and even fungi like mushrooms or molds.

Plants are producers, using the energy of the sun to make seeds, cones, and spores to reproduce, while fungi are decomposers that break. Biotic stresses mainly result in disease in plants. Micro‐organisms can cause plant wilt, leaf spots, root rot, seed damage and many more problems.
