Our lab investigates the causes and consequences of fungal community formation, including the roles of fungi in symbioses and landscape-scale biogeochemical dynamics.
We have projects investigating a broad suite of topics in fungal ecology, including:
– Lifestyle influences on the human oral mycobiome
– Fungal community recovery from forest fires
– Salinity constraints on aquatic fungi in The Great Salt Lake
– Endophytes in critically-endangered cacti
