HYNSON LAB FOR COMMUNITY ECOLOGY UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII

DEPARTMENT OF BOTANY  

 
 

We study plant and fungal communities. We are especially interested in the symbiosis between plants and fungi known as mycorrhizae. The goals of our research are to better understand the ecology, evolution, and physiology of the mycorrhizal symbiosis through field and laboratory experiments that take place in a diversity of settings.

Welcome to our lab!
