The ground: Piece of a forest
The ground: Piece of a Forest Forests are complicated biotopes full of life in diverse forms. In Finland there’s over 20 000 forest species found. The ground, containing 2/3 of the forests’ carbon is an important factor in the forest ecosystem. The trees falling and dying, life decaying, provide nutrients to numerous species while becoming part of the ground’s carbon storage. Underneath, the trees’ root system connects with mycorrhiza mycelium and exhanges information impulses, creating a network in which an old central tree might be connected to dosens of trees around it.
