About the Department of Forest Mycology and Plant Pathology

Through our research we answer questions about how agriculture and forestry can be conducted in a world where the climate is changing.

Microbes play a very important role in the ecosystem of our planet. We focus on interactions involving plants, pathogenic, symbiotic and saprotrophic fungi and other microorganisms and their role in forest and agricultural
systems. We actively collaborate with the forest industry and farmers as well as perform basic research to understand underlying mechanisms.

The Department is part of the BioCenter at SLU in Uppsala. The Centre for Biological Control (CBC) is placed under the Department.
