Graduate Research Topic
I'm studying the use of ectomycorrhizal fungi to improve restoration of pitch pine in the Albany Pine Bush Preserve. Preserve managers have been removing invasive black locust trees and reintroducing periodic fires to reestablish the native pitch pine - scrub oak communities. I hope to provide a tool to promote successful establishment of pitch pines in previously invaded areas.
