Scientists studying mechanisms by which plants growing in hot geothermal soils like Yellowstone National Park tolerate extreme heat, claim they have discovered symbiotic fungi which impart significant heat tolerance to a wide range of plants.
According to Grist;
… But there’s a lesser-known type of fungus that actually grows inside the bodies of most, if not all, plants, inhabiting the empty spaces between cells. Fungi that do this are known as endophytes, and they’re what Rodriguez and Redman found were the key to those plants surviving in Yellowstone.
Alone, neither the fungus nor the plants could survive temperatures higher than about 100 degrees F. But with their powers combined, they could somehow tolerate the extreme heat of geothermal soils. What’s more, the plants infected with these…

Jessica attended the University of San Diego’s lawyer’s assistant program immediately after obtaining her undergraduate degree. She worked as a legal assistant while she pursued her master’s in forensic science. After obtaining her MS. degree she continued to work in the legal field for years till she got involved in the pre-planning business.
She has been working on her PhD in forensic psychology on and off over the past several years.
Her current focus of analysis is assisting in the process of perfecting a comprehensive analysis of LIFE EXPECTANCY as it relates to ELEVATION / LONGITUDE / LATITUDE / POPULATION DENSITY and NUTRITION variables and their relationship to life span and quality of life to produce a dissertation topic that focuses on solutions to the problem of a decreasing life expectancy and its relationship to increasing income inequalities in America.
Improving educational skills training is the #1 variable involved in elevating quality of life while simultaneously raising life expectancy. (Klocko, et al., 2015). A qualitative approach, utilizing both quantitative statistics over time and qualitative population sampling, would best represent all angles of this topic (Stimpson & Walker, 2020).
