Rachael Antwis, PhD, University of Salford
Ash dieback is a fungal disease sweeping through Europe, causing up to 95% loss of ash; one our most common tree species. In this seminar, Dr. Rachael Antwis will provide an overview of the disease, and how researchers are attempting to limit the loss of this important tree species. She will also discuss her recent research, funded by the TREE Fund’s Jack Kimmel International Grant, looking at how natural microbial communities in ash leaves may be important for regulating disease progression within the host.
