Our research in forest pathology concentrates on pathogenic fungi causing diseases in forests. We study the interactions between the pathogen, the host tree and the environment from molecular to ecosystem level.

We investigate the biology of the fungal pathogens, colonization and dispersal patterns as well as possible measures to control or prevent damage to the forests.
