Plants are the basis of all ecosystems and a fascinating part of nature. So ignore your preconceptions from school that plants are boring and dive into the complex world of relationships between plants with microbes, animals and us!
Hopefully, this blog will capture your imagination and encourage you to see plants in a new light!
OK I might be a little bias as I am a PhD student who studies plant interactions! I look at how plants compete and interact with each other over time, based in both the James Hutton Institute and Manchester Metropolitan University. I am also interested in how plants are portrayed to the public and policy-makers, and how we can educate people better about the value of plants.
