Project on mycoheterotrophy funded by ERC

It has been quiet for a while here, but that doesn’t mean nothing has happened. On the contrary, I am happy to report that a project proposal on mycoheterotrophy was funded by the European Research Council. In the project, named MIXOTROPH, I will test the hypothesis that many green plants can take up carbon from mycorrhizal fungi, just like the fully mycoheterotrophic plants featured on this site. Exciting times ahead!
