In natural forests, trees interact with countless microorganisms such as fungi and bacteria. Fungal endophytes are an important part of these microorganisms.
Fungal endophytes are microscopic fungi that live undetected in the leaves, branches, trunks and roots of trees. We still know very little about them because they generally cause no problems to their host. However, they are an important reservoir of biodiversity in forest ecosystems.
