Department of Forest Mycology and Plant Pathology

We undertake fundamental and applied research focused on interactions involving plants, pathogenic, symbiotic and saprotrophic fungi, bacteria and a rchaea and their role in forest and agricultural

Plant protection fungus can control the behavior of plant pathogenic fungi with the help of small RNAs

For the first time, researchers have shown that one fungal species can control the behavior of another fungus using secreted RNA molecules. It has important uses in food safety to protect crops from

Transdisciplinary research in plant pathology wins award

Phenomics is a relatively new transdisciplinary research area where you try to capture large amount of image data to understand all sorts of biological phenomena. In his master thesis, Eric Javier

How does naturally occurring and added nitrogen affect ectomycorrhizal communities?

Ectomycorrhiza is a symbiosis between forest trees and fungi. Ectomycorrhizal fungi are extremely important for the trees’ nutrient uptake. Nitrogen affects these fungi in different ways depending on

Leaves as spore traps for improved forecasting methods

In this project we investigate if wheat leaves can be used to catch and analyse fungal spores. By increasing our knowledge on how diseases spread, we suggest better control strategies. Knowledge of

We are looking for three new professors

Now, we are looking for three new professors in plant pathology, in microbial ecology in forest ecosystems and in forest pathology at the Department of forest mycology and plant pathology. Plant

Forest policy and planning group

Our group conducts research across multiple disciplines, with forest policy and planning as the bearing subjects. The research ranges from forest planning at landscape level to comparative forest

Thawing permafrost decrease the diversity of water-dwelling fungi

As the climate gets warmer, the permafrost will thaw, and enormous amounts of carbon bound in the tundra will be made available. This can impact the diversity of degrading fungi in the meltwater,
