Indeterminate Fungal Growth and Nutritional Heterogeneity

Abstract:

Fungi play an important role in ecology. They can be found in nutritionally complex environments. Roots of around 80% of land plant species have an association with fungi and these fungi can utilize up to 20% of net plant photosynthates. We know little about how fungal growth responds to nutritional heterogeneity in the environment. In the last three years, I have used both laboratory experiments and mathematic models as approaches to try and understand this question. In this talk, I will present the results from this study.

All welcome to attend.
