The oddest interaction? That’s open to interpretation, really! One interesting interaction is fescue grass and the endophyte Acremonium. Acremonium is a non-harming parasite that colonizes fescue. The fungus doesn’t harm the plant, but it makes it toxic for cattle to consume, effectively creating a great defensive strategy for the plant!
Also, many fungi found in forests supply trees with nutrients that the trees may not necessarily be able to receive locally or on their own. A complex relationship exists between tree roots and fungi.
