Forest Ecology and Mycorrhizas

Forest health is dependent on trees acquiring enough water and nutrients. Tree species forage belowground differently, depending on differences in their roots and mycorrhizas. A student working on this project will investigate root and fungal diversity and how it relates to how trees forage for nutrients.
