Microbiology with Justin Stewart
October 7, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree
I am an ecologist and evolutionary biologist researching microbiomes, plants, and geography.
Currently, I research the symbiosis between bacteria, fungi, and plants with an emphasis on root architecture, domestication, and urban environments. The microbes living in and on plant roots are the backbone of global agriculture as well as all the aboveground biodiversity we see in the world. During the domestication of plants, we lost a great deal of plant genetic diversity. What microbes have we lost and how does this vary across evolutionary history? How can we enhance microbial symbiosis for plants in agricultural and urban ecosystems?
