Conservation students learned plant identification skills and helped establish long-term vegetation monitoring plots on the University of South Alabama campus along with Katie and Madison from Mobile Bay National Estuarine Program!
Coastal fungi isolation
We've been working hard to isolate arbuscular mycorrhizal spores and dark septate endophyte strains from multiple sites around the Alabama Gulf Coast. Our goal is to isolate and identify strains that confer pathogen protection and enhance growth of coastal plant species in hopes to improve the restoration of coastal plant communities.
