“[Fungal networks] have recently been discovered by Professor Suzanne Simard and her graduate students to connect the roots of trees and facilitate the sharing of resources in Douglas-fir forests of interior British Columbia, thereby bolstering their resilience against disturbance or stress and facilitating the establishment of new regeneration.” http://www.botanicalgarden.ubc.ca/potd/2010/03/mycorrhizal_networks.php

Have a look at this RLE (or similar ones) and see why it is “accepted” by people within the discipline. Obviously peer review is huge part of it in the sciences but be as detailed and specific as possible within the discipline you are looking at. Remember with this prescribed title to clearly focus on two disciplines, not just two AOKs.
