Research focus


My main interest in research is the ecology of soil fungi and mycorrhizas. In the frame of my doctoral thesis and of my habilitation, I tried to elucidate the biological and ecological strategies of higher ascomycetes and in particular of the morels. Therefore, I used a broad range of field and laboratory techniques like light and transmission electron microscopy, analyses of metabolites, isoenzymes and DNA (PCR) and also cultivation models in pure culture or in association with higher plants.
