Interested in plant-fungal interactions, community ecology and the day-to-day life of a scientist? Email Laura Aldrich-Wolfe or drop by her office, 318 Stevens Hall, to find out how to get started working in the lab.
We are delighted that John Baggerly has joined the lab. He will be working on his Master’s degree in Environmental and Conservation Science examining the functional roles of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi for co-occurring plant species in two contrasting grassland sites. Welcome to life belowground!
Congratulations to Libby Sternhagen on being awarded the Robert H. Levis II Cross Ranch Fellowship in recognition of her excellent work to date on her Master’s thesis in Environmental Science and Conservation at NDSU.
Laura traveled to Prague, Czech Republic July 28th-August 4th to give a talk at the Ninth International Conference on Mycorrhiza.

Great to meet up with three great scientists – Lyn Abbott, Lauren Waller and Ylva Lekberg – along the way.
Libby and Laura had a great time at the annual meeting of the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico, July 9-14, 2017.
Libby presented her talk Effect of coffee management regime on guilds of belowground fungi, and Laura presented hers on Hints at the structure of the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal community from a
