While everybody is talking about diversity, Dr. Robert R. Junker is an expert in multi-diversity: the interaction of all plants, fungi, bacteria, and animals in an ecosystem. At TEDxKuchl he takes us on a journey into a tiny and almost invisible world: the plant’s microbiome. Bacterial communities live in close association with their host and help to protect the plants against enemies, to gain nutrients and to resist droughts. More insight into such hidden interactions and mechanisms can lead to a more sustainable way of future food production. Robert is a recipient of the 2017 Christian Doppler award and was granted the FWF Start Prize in 2018 for his work on functional multi diversity.
