From plankton and plants to fish and even to large mammals, the aquatic ecosystem provides shelter to such a diverse range of life that few other ecosystems can ever compare to this large scope.
Coral reefs are amongst the most complex and bio-diverse ecosystems, spanning approximately 284,300 km2 (Spalding & Ravilious et al., 2001) providing a home for 25% of all marine life....
Considering this quantity of fungal mycelia in the soil, it is easily possible that the whole forest ecosystem might be interconnected by a fungal web called common mycorrhizal network (CMN) (Peter, 2006; Lekberg et al., 2010).
