Above-Belowground Interactions

Research

We study how plants, microbes and insects interact and focus on soil dwelling and aboveground organisms that are associated to particular plants or trees. We examine how individual organisms interact and how aboveground and belowground communities are linked. A central aim of our work is to steer plant communities and plant-insect interactions via the soil microbiome. We study these above-belowground interactions under controlled conditions in growth chambers and greenhouses, and outdoors in  field experiments and in natural and agricultural systems.
