Research Interests

My research is concerned with various aspects of the fungi, involving plant parasitic fungi, mycorrhizal associates, and saprobes. The relationships of fungi with other organisms, particularly those between plant parasitic species and their hosts are a basic interest. Also, the composition of the fungus community in particular habitats, and attempts to interpret and understand fungus distribution are a challenge for the mycology group. At the present, we are working intensively with plant parasitic fungi of tall grass prairies.
