My research group focuses on one group of mycorrhizal fungi (arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi – Phylum Glomeromycota), although we often include other fungi (mycorrhizal, saprobic, pathogenic), and other soil biota as well (e.g., bacteria, protists, fungi, invertebrates). We use two approaches in studying mycorrhizal ecology: (a) comparative and manipulative field studies and (b) controlled experiments under laboratory and greenhouse conditions.
