A graduate seminar network to facilitate synthetic research on context-dependency in the mycorrhizal symbiosis

Principal Investigators:

Jason D. Hoeksema, and James D. Bever

Although mycorrhizal symbioses, in which plants exchange carbohydrates for nutrients with root associated fungal symbionts, are classically considered a mutualism, they can display a high degree of variability in ecological outcomes ranging from mutualism to parasitism. Given the ubiquity and importance of this interaction, understanding the controls on its variability is paramount for basic and applied ecology. One centerpiece activity of a previous NCEAS working group (“Bridging the gap between theory and practice in mycorrhizal management,”... more
