Evan Fellrath - MSc student
Evan is interested in fungal-plant associations, including mycorrhizae, endophytes and pathogens, as well as community and disturbance ecology. He earned his bachelors in Environmental Biology from the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry. He has worked for the United States Forest Service in southeast Alaska, as well as for various New York State research projects such as the American Chestnut Foundation. Evan is currently studying communities of mycorrhizal fungi in beetle killed lodgepole pine stands across various landscapes, and is assessing the efficacy of inoculation of pine seedlings with fungi from healthy pine stands to counteract the effects of detrimental fungal taxa often occurring in high-mortality beetle-killed stands. Evan is co-supervised by Nadir Erbilgin.
