    About This Project

    Mycorrhizae are fungi that live in the soil and form partnerships with plants, providing hard-to-find nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus in exchange for sugar. Plants that rely on mycorrhizae tend to perform poorly in areas where their partners are not present. This project's goal is to test whether establishing mycorrhizae on American chestnut seedlings in the lab can improve their growth and survival in the field.
