Our understanding of fungi at CERA is growing tremendously through the research efforts of Kathy Jacobson, Associate Professor of Biology, student projects in her fungal biology course, and independent or MAP student research projects. Efforts are underway to catalog the diversity of macrofungi at CERA and to study the differences in diversity among habitats and in response to restoration practices such as canopy thinning and prescribed burning.
