Understanding symbiotic interactions between fungi, bacteria and plants

 

The Bonito Lab studies the ecology and evolution of plant-fungal-bacterial associations, with a particular interest in belowground root-associated fungi including truffles, mushrooms & molds, and their microbiomes.

These organisms provide important links between plants and soils, and are functionally important to plant health and nutrition as well as nutrient cycles and the flow of energy through terrestrial ecosystems.

Gregory Bonito is an assistant professor in the Department of Plant Soil and Microbial Sciences at Michigan State University.
