    It turns out mushrooms & their underground root systems also function for the forest community as a communication network for trees and their family members! It’s as if the trees utilize the underground mushroom network as telephone lines, to find and alert each other of nutrients, water, etc. Studies have shown that trees will share nutrients only with related saplings & other mature trees and not with those of different genetic lines. Mushrooms are utilized in this process. Check it out in “Smarty Plants”, BBC’s ‘The Nature of Things’ series.
