Fungi take in oxygen, releasing carbon dioxide, while breaking down rock and organic matter to release nutrients essential for plants to grow. Plants recycle the carbon dioxide, releasing oxygen, while photosynthesizing to produce carbon sugars which they share with fungi so that both plants and fungi can flourish. There are a multitude of interesting…
