Mycorrhizas in
Tropical Forests
September 22-25, 2008, Loja, Ecuador


We kindly invite scientists and doctoral students working in the field of mycorrhizas of tropical forests to exchange experience and new research strategies in these fairly neglected ecosystems.

The workshop shall address diversity of mycobionts and mycorrhizal types of woody plants, herbs and epiphytes in neotropical and paleotropical, wet and seasonally dry, lowland and mountain rain forests. Impacts on plant diversity and composition, on ecology and ecosystem dynamics, on threat and regeneration of tropical forests shall be topics for presentations and discussions.

Looking forward to learn about your interest and abstract
