Michael F. Allen
My interests focus on the regulation of community and ecosystem processes by soil organisms with special emphasis on mycorrhizal fungi. My current research concentrates on global change dynamics and structure of undisturbed areas, and how that information can be utilized in the conservation and restoration of native ecosystems.
Please visit Dr. Allen's Soil Mycorrhizal Lab or the Department of Plant Pathology and Microbiology website for more information.
Educational background: B.S. in Environmental Biology from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.
