Through deep transformations of the entire planet over the last few centuries, humans succeeded in getting a number of the biosphere processes out of balance. Could the lessons of cooperation in mycorrhizal symbiosis help establishing a brighter future of the mankind? This issue, besides the advancements of research on mycorrhizal ecology and function shall be openly discussed.
