Brown Bag Seminar – Rebecca Bunn – Do mycorrhizal fungi have a role to play after dam removal?

Do mycorrhizal fungi have a role to play after dam removal? Rebecca Bunn, Western Washington University, Environmental Sciences. Restoration following dam removal projects may depend in part on recovery of arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) and ectomycorrhizal (EM) fungal communities, which form symbioses with most land plants and perform important functions belowground. The removal of two dams from the Elwha River (Washington, United States) left 300 ha of dewatered reservoir sediments, an ideal study system for evaluating the availability and function of mycorrhizal…
