During my Master's research with Dr. Terry Henkel at Humboldt State University I worked in a unique ectomycorrhizal rainforest dominated by Dicymbe corymbosa. Be sure to check out his cool project website here.
The unique, multi-stemmed, mast fruiting, ECM forming tree is host to a unique array of novel fungi. I studied the role of that they played in mining litter nutrients and interacting with decomposer fungi during litter decomposition processes.
