Current project

PhD thesis, working title: “Soil fungal diversity and community structure of grassland ecosystems along land use gradients in three German Exploratories”.
This work is a part of the Biodiversity Exploratories in Germany and we mainly focus on the interaction between plant traits, land-use intensity and environmental conditions with the rhizosphere mycobiomes of grassland.
