CBE Seminar: Belowground ecology: Making sense of plant microbe interactions
- Thursday, October 17, 2019 from 4:10pm to 5:00pm
- Roberts Hall, 312A - view map
Dr. Cathy Zabinski is a professor in land resources and environmental sciences at MSU, where she works on soil processes that are affected by disturbance and restoration practices, including nutrient cycling, decomposition, and plant-microbe interactions. Plant roots exert control on soil microbes by providing habitat and organic matter for microbial communities, which in turn can impact plants through their role in nutrient dynamics and symbiotic interactions. In this talk, Cathy will review research from her lab related to both agricultural soils and native plant communities, to consider ecological interactions belowground.
