Plants of Cypress

The park is also home to a wide variety of fungi species.  Many are mycorrhizal with trees. This is a relationship in which the trees supply carbohydrates to the fungi, and the fungi supply trace elements and water to the trees. Both groups benefit from this interaction. Many fungi thrive in the moist environment of the forests and others prefer the open meadows. Most species fruit in the damp weather of spring and fall.
