A little fungus meets a baby cacao tree and they learn to feed each other. They cooperate with a forest of plants and a metropolis of microbes in the soil. But when drought strikes can they work together to survive?

“Beautifully illustrated, well written, and provides a clear introduction to a hugely important topic.”
