How can I incorporate more of an engaging and interesting flow in the body paragraphs of my essay?
It is important to think about the structure of each paragraph which you are writing. First jot down the broad strokes of what it is you hope to express in a given paragraph. Get your ideas down. Include notable facts or quotations which you would like to include. Then fill in around those ideas and create complete sentences. Make sure that each sentence is beginning in a way that is unique from the sentences around it. There should be some variation in the length of the sentences. Are there too many run-on compound sentences? Break up your ideas. Then sequence the sentences as though you are telling a story--a story which begins in a fascinating, open-ended way and which ends in a way that provides closure and grace.

How do fungi play an important role in the nutrient uptake of trees?
There is a certain kind of fungi known as Mycorrhizal fungi which live around the root networks of trees. Their long mycelial networks thread through the soil and are able to access macro and micro-nutrients which exist throughout the different strata of the soil profile. They stretch far beyond the extent of the trees' roots and are therefore able to access nutrients which the roots otherwise could not. There is a mutualist association between the Mycorrhizal fungi and trees. In exchange for the nutrients and minerals which are "mined" by the extensive fungal networks, trees offer the fungi precious carbon sugars that are secreted as exudates from the roots. Thus, they are able to help feed one another.
