This presentation will explore the role of decomposing fungi within the matrix of the soil food web. While  saprophytic soil fungi are  still thought of as only a soil pathogens by most commercial farmers, there is a growing understanding of the essential  roles that these soil decomposers play in the complexity of the hidden ecosystems of health soils. The emphasis of this talk will be on cultivated soils.
