Research topic

Milagros  PhD research project aims to understand the role of mycorrhizal fungi on global and regional carbon cycle. To pursue this goal, she will investigate the global distribution patterns of different types of mycorrhizal fungi (Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi and Ectomycorrhizal fungi), the environmental and ecological drivers of these patterns and the implications on biogeochemical cycles.
