Phylogenetic and functional patterns of host plants and their associated fungi: implications for symbiotic co-evolution, community interactions, and ecosystem processes
Comas, Louise , Callahan, Hilary .
Co-evolution of plant-fungal interactions.
There is growing appreciation of plant-fungal interactions as important forces structuring communities and affecting ecosystem processes. Nearly all plants form associations with fungi and have since the first plants colonized terrestrial landscapes. This symposium will explore the history and nature of these interactions; how they have directed plant-fungal co-evolution; and how they affect community interactions and ecosystem function.
