Public presentations of lab research
Peter made three presentations of lab research this fall. In October, he presented work on ectomycorrhizal competitive dynamics at a research seminar at the University of Oregon. In November, he presented research on ectomycorrhizal competition and the unique nature of Alnus ectomycorrhizal communities to the North American Truffling Society and the Oregon Mycological Society, respectively. Peter wrote a synopsis of the lab’s current research on Alnus ectomycorrhizal communities in the journal McIlvainea. A link to that article, entitled “Ectomycorrhizal fungi in alder forests: a global anomaly in richness and composition?” can be found here: http://www.namyco.org/publications/mcilvainea/v20/alder_fungi.html. Thank you to Dr. Mike Beug for the kind invitation to submit an article to McIlvainea.
