Research

 

Ecology, population genetics and evolution of fungi where molecular markers have been developed to study diversity, population structure and reproductive mode of soil fungi. Among the studied fungi are Fusarium, Penicillium, various Oomycota (Peronosporamycota) as well as the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) in Glomales and fungi associated with insects. We use ISSR, AFLP and DNA sequencing in combination with SSCP to generate markers for these studies. Molecular diversity of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in agricultural fields and natural vegetation is studied at community level from variation in LSU rDNA sequences and DGGE is used for studies of community structure.

Teaching

 

Supervised ca.  50 M.Sc students and 7 phd students. Ecology, Biological diversity, Evolutionary biology, Experimental ecology at the Bsc level, and Experimental Mycology at the MSc level
