Department of Forest Mycology and Plant Pathology
You can find us out in the field digging holes with big shovels or pipetting like there is no tomorrow in the lab. We investigate how microorganisms like fungi and bacteria interact with the environment.
We provide undergraduate courses that can take place both in the field and in the molecular lab. We also give a postgraduate education.
Our research is focused on interactions involving plants, pathogenic, symbiotic and saprotrophic fungi and other microorganisms and their role in forest and agricultural systems.
