nice! i recently read a paper about fire-loving fungi and bryophytes.
i was quite surprised to learn that bryophytes are among the first organisms to grow in the wake of a fire; helping to stabilise the soil. somehow i had always considered them to be too delicate for such an inhospitable environment.
the paper provided evidence to suggest that fire-loving fungi live inside bryophtyes for part of their life-cycle - with the plants acting as protective capsules during fire events.
@glyph I would like to have a look at that paper if you have a link please.
I too am surprised to hear that as they often need very damp conditions to survive and breed.
They are quite surprising things though!
discussion about the paper (audio not great - apologies):
Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
