A Focus on Fungi

MiaMaltz_150629_UCI.jpg

Mia Maltz, a doctoral candidate in ecology & evolutionary biology at UC Irvine, is trying to determine how what happens underground, at the root level, can enhance habitat restoration efforts. Maltz’s focus is on fungi, specifically a type called mycorrhiza (“myco” meaning fungus, and “rhiza” meaning root) that invades plant root systems. She is discovering that using this fungi can produce more robust plants.
