#ForestFacts fact #3
The #WoodWideWeb is a communication network between #trees, #fungi and #MicroOrganisms.

In a #forest's #soil there is a symbiotic network between fungi, #tree #roots and microorganisms. Trees can use this network to communicate and help each other.

* #Saplings, young trees, receive carbon compounds from older trees.
* Trees warn each other e.g. about vermin and poisonous plants.
* Sick trees get enzymes from healthy trees
* If a tree dies lots of its nutrients of the tree go into the network

#introduction

The #GreatGreenWall is Africa's flagship initiative to combat the increasing #desertification. Led by the African Union, the initiative aims to transform the lives of millions of people by creating a mosaic of green and productive landscapes across North Africa. (Wikipedia)

Follow this account to read about the #history, #ambition, #challenges and #results of the GGW. I will also post #news articles, #ForestFacts, describe the wall's #partners and the Great Green Wall #film.

I'm a private person doing this in my spare time, but if this account gets lots of followers I'll contact the people behind the GGW and ask if I can join their social media team and maintain an official account.
