El biólogo Mohamed Hijri saca a la luz una crisis agrícola de la que nadie está hablando: nos estamos quedando sin fósforo, un elemento esencial que es un componente clave del ADN y la base de la comunicación celular. Todos los caminos de esta crisis nos conducen de vuelta a la forma en que cultivamos, con fertilizantes químicos llenos de este elemento que las plantas no absorben eficientemente. ¿Una solución? Tal vez... un hongo microscópico. (Filmado en TEDxUdeM.)

Mohamed Hijri studies arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), seeking to understand the structure, evolution and reproduction of these organisms, which form a symbiotic relationship with plant roots. Full bio
