Fungal Ecology

Fungi occur in all type of environment on earth and plays vital roles in most ecosystems. These are the major decomposers along with bacteria in most terrestrial and some aquatic ecosystems, and therefore play a critical role in biogeochemical cycles and in many food webs play an essential role in nutrient cycling by degrading organic matters to inorganic molecules, which can then re-enter to different anabolic metabolic pathways in plants and other organisms. 

  • Population dynamics, adaptation and evolution
  • Role in ecosystem functioning
  • Nutrient cycling, decomposition and carbon allocation
  • Eco-physiology
  • Intra- and inter-specific mycelial interactions
  • Fungus-plant (pathogens, mycorrhizas, lichens, endophytes)
  • Fungus-invertebrate and fungus-microbe interaction
  • Genomics and (evolutionary) genetics
  • Bioremediation and biodegradation
