Nov 18, 2015We are thrilled to collaborate with biologists and linguists from UH, CSUEB, Swarthmore, NYBG and the Vanuatu National Herbarium to document the cultural and biotic diversity of Vanuatu. This will mean some incredible field work and an opportunity to fill in some blank spots on our map of endophyte and macrofungal diversity.
Oct 1, 2015Andrea is working on a large collaborative project examining fungal community response to nutrient pulses in corals, and Katie is helping out with our endophyte project. Welcome!
Aug 12, 2015Dr. Geoff has come to help with our study of snail microbial transplants.

Apr 2, 2015The Amend lab is hiring a postdoc to study phyllosphere fungal ecology for our Achatinella project. Please see the job ad in the "Join" link. Thanks!
Feb 19, 2015Anthony's latest paper looks at how manipulated phylogenetic diversity of fungi affects leaf litter decomposition rates. Amend, A. S., Matulich, K. L., & Martiny, J. B. (2015). Nitrogen addition, not initial phylogenetic diversity, increases litter decomposition by fungal communities. Frontiers in Microbiology, 6, 109.
