Nerdy About Nature

Podchat 06 | The Microbial World of Forest Ecology with Julia Huggins


Julia Huggins is a forest ecologist, microbiologist, National Geographic Naturalist, PHD student and huuuuge nerd who specializes in the tiny world that makes up the big world we all share - microbes!  Her & I sat down amongst some Alders to chat about the role microbes play in our forests and the biogeochemical processes across the globe, and even got our hands dirty digging for microbial root nodules.  From bacteria to lichen, you're gonna love this chat!

Here's that TED talk from Paul Stamets we referenced - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XI5frPV58tY
