Lena Neuenkamp is a specialist in plant ecology at our lab. In June 2018, she finished her PhD studies on the effects of arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungal community structure on plant diversity and composition in semi-natural dry grasslands and how these effects change in response to altered land-use practices ( As a specialist, she continues her work on the disentangling the factors shaping the interaction between plant and AM fungal communities, focussing mostly on the effect of AM fungal diversity as a driver of plant-plant competition and the role of changes in carbon limitation due to altered light conditions (e.g. under a denser shrub and tree cover in unmanaged grasslands).
