Mycorrhizal symbiosis

Last changed: 05 February 2024

We focus on the biology, evolution and ecology of symbiotic mycorrhizal fungi. Our research includes the diversity and molecular evolution of symbiotic fungi and their roles in biogeochemical cycling, mineral weathering and carbon sequestration.

We also investigate the establishment and regulation of symbiosis of these fungi with forest trees, grasses and crop plants, and their effect on plant development and stress resistance. We work on ectomycorrhizal as well as arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in relation to the wider soil microbiome.
