Rebecca Hewitt: A focus on root-associated fungi informs predictions of plant-soil feedbacks in the boreal forest after fire

In our new post Rebecca Hewitt—Assistant Professor at Amherst College, MA, USA—presents her work ‘Wildfire impacts on root-associated fungi and predicted plant-soil feedbacks in the boreal forest: research progress and recommendations’. She discusses the importance of plant-fungal interactions to cope with fire disturbance and shares her fascination for environmental research. About the paper We wrote a review paper that synthesizes what is currently known about … Continue reading Rebecca Hewitt: A focus on root-associated fungi informs predictions of plant-soil feedbacks in the boreal forest after fire
