Meeting May 20, 7pm – Sarah Kyker, “The Fungi Beneath our Feet”

Sarah Kyker is a microbial ecologist at the Holden Arboretum interested in the influence of human induced and natural environment changes on microbial communities. Her research is focused on deciduous forest soils. Just a teaspoon of uncontaminated soil is estimated to contain millions of microbial species and billions of microbial cells. She studies mainly bacteria and fungi as they make up a large portion of the microbial diversity in the soil and help our dahlias grow.
