May 2018 > We have held the PhD course on «Community assembly rules in fungal and microbial ecology: state of the art and up-to-date tools». During an entire week we have received the visit of Tancredi Caruso (Universitu of Belfast), Erik Verbruggen (University of Antwerp) and Otso Ovaskainen (University of Helsinki). Together with our local panel (Jacob Weiner, Soren Rosendhal, Camilla Pereira, Jacob Heilmann-Clauser and me), we have discussed about theory on community assembly rules, methodological approaches for their study, and the application of the developments in macroorganisms to the study of microbial communities. We received 23 students from 11 countries.


December 2017 > We have been awarded with funds from the Dept. of Biology (University of Copenhagen) to organize a course on Microbial community assembly. It will be held in Copenhagen from 30th April to 4th May 2018.


July 2017 > Talk and poster presented in the International Conference of Mycorrhiza 9 in Prague https://mycorrhizas.org/home/events/
The title: Dispersal and primary succession of plant and arbuscular mycorrhizal communities».


Sampling islands

August 2017 > Finally, we have sampled in newly formed islands in the coast of Denmark. The aim: tracing primary succession of plants and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi.

Temuco (Chile)

October 2017 > Travel to visit the mycorrhizal group in Universidad de la Frontera, in Temuco (Chile). I am collaborating to optimize the molecular techniques to study arbuscular mycorrhizal communities associated to different varieties of wheat.

February 2017 > The talk Assessment of the recovery of functional diversity of ectomycorrhizal fungal communities in metal polluted soils was presented during the MEDECOS-AEET meeting 2017 (http://www.medecos-aeet-meeting2017.es/).


March 2017 > The master student Rasmus J. P. Jespersen is going to start his master project on mycorrhizal traits from a plant perspective in the frame of the DISPMIC project, under my supervision and Rasmus Kjoller.


June 2017 > I have been awarded with an Erasmus Teaching stuff interchange with University of Cádiz to teach some hours in the Biogeography course of Dr. Fernando Ojeda (Link)


December 2016 > I have given a seminar about the study carried out in the frame of the RESTECO project in the University of Copenhagen.
