My Projects
Fungal associates of plant parasite, Comandra umbellata (2018)

Comandra umbellata is associated with high quality grassland remnants. It is credited with increasing plant diversity due to its hemiparasitic effects. However, it has been particularly difficult to establish in restorations. This project will investigate possible mycorrhizal factors limiting establishment of C. umbellata in the field and the role of seed recruitment in current populations.
