Fungi and their functions: from individuals to the globe

Location: Wentworth 1

Speaker: Nicole Hynson, Associate Professor, Pacific Biosciences Research Center University of Hawaii at Manoa

Abstract: Fungi are one of the most diverse groups of organisms on the planet and play critical roles in global biogeochemical cycles, climate, food supply and as symbionts. However, the diversity and function of fungi, especially in natural environments is understudied. By using data from Hawaiian study systems, Nicole Hynson explores fungal diversity and function at various biological, temporal and geographic scales ranging from interactions between single species to global patterns. All are welcome to attend!
