EcolChange seminar – Jeanalle Eck about microbes that shape plant disease and diversity

Seminars of Department of Botany, Doctoral School of Earth Sciences and Ecology and Centre of Excellence EcolChange

Speaker: Jenalle Eck is post-doctoral researcher at the University of Zürich, Switzerland. She studies plant population and community ecology, with special emphasis on plant-microbial interactions. Jenalle is visiting Department of Botany for collaboration with Plant Ecology Laboratory.

Title of the talk: Genotype-specific microbes shape plant disease and diversity: from Panama to Plantago

Time: Thursday, 16. May 2019 at 15.15

Place: Tartu, Lai 40-218 (Vaga auditorium)

Summary: Genotype is important in mediating interactions between plants and microbes, and genotype-specific interactions can create complex eco-evolutionary dynamics in plant populations and communities. In this talk, I describe insights on this topic from research in two study systems, the tropical forests of Panama and the temperate grasslands of Finland.
