Dimentions of Ectomycorrhizal Diversity

I thought I’d share some photos of sites we’ve sampled for our NSF Dimentions of Biodiversity mycobiome survey of North American pine forests.   As of Dec 2013, we have visited over 50 sites representing all of the major sections of the genus Pinus (along with a few additional Picea sites for good measure).  Here’s a link to our google map showing sites that we have surveyed.

Here’s a link to our just-published paper with Jennifer Talbot and Kabir Peay on diversity of  North American ECM fungi growing under Pinaceae.     Stanford News has also released a profile about the paper which includes interviews with   Jennifer Talbot and Kabir Peay.
