Topic: Fungi of Cedar Creek Presented by Dr. Peter Kennedy, associate professor in the Department of Plant & Microbial Biology
Dr. Kennedy will share information the marvelous fungi that are abound at Cedar Creek. He will also share about work done in his lab:
Our lab is broadly interested in the ecology of plant-microbe interactions. Much of our work has focused on symbioses between forest trees and ectomycorrhizal fungi, but has increasingly involved other groups of fungi as well as bacteria. Our research questions integrate multiple biological disciplines: mycology and microbiology, ecology and evolution, and molecular biology and biochemistry. Though field sampling and experiments along with greenhouse and growth chamber studies, we seek to mechanistically understand how biotic and abiotic factors influence both the structure and functioning of microbial and plant communities.
