Mycorrhizal Fungus Transplants Can Help Restore Prairies.
Tanya Cheeke, Assistant Professor, Microbial Ecology, Washington State University
October 11, 2018, 7:00 p.m., 1912 Center Great Room, 412 East Third St., Moscow, Idaho
Tanya Cheeke will speak on transplanting mycorrhizal fungus to help restore prairie ecosystems. She has researched the role of mycorrhizal transplants in successfully restoring tall grass prairie in Kansas. Native plant species are often more dependent on mycorrhizal fungi than are invasive species. When the fungi are disturbed, mycorrhizal-dependent native plants do not compete well with invasive species. She and her team are now testing the mycorrhizal responsiveness of some of the local Palouse prairie plants. This program is jointly sponsored with the White Pine Chapter of INPS.
