Alvaro Lopez-Garcia en Praga
July 2017
> Talk and poster presented in the International Conference of Mycorrhiza 9 in Prague
The title: Dispersal and primary succession of plant and arbuscular mycorrhizal communities".
Alvaro Lopez-Garcia islands in the coast of Denmark
August 2017
> Finally, we have sampled in newly formed islands in the coast of Denmark. The aim: tracing primary succession of plants and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi.
Alvaro Lopez-Garcia en TemucoOctober 2017 > Travel to visit the mycorrhizal group in Universidad de la Frontera, in Temuco (Chile). I am collaborating to optimize the molecular techniques to study arbuscular mycorrhizal communities associated to different varieties of wheat.

February 2017 > The talk Assessment of the recovery of functional diversity of ectomycorrhizal fungal communities in metal polluted soils was presented during the MEDECOS-AEET meeting 2017 (http://www.medecos-aeet-meeting2017.es/).

March 2017 > The master student Rasmus J. P. Jespersen is going to start his master project on mycorrhizal traits from a plant perspective in the frame of the DISPMIC project, under my supervision and Rasmus Kjoller.

June 2017 > I have been awarded with an Erasmus Teaching stuff interchange with University of Cádiz to teach some hours in the Biogeography course of Dr. Fernando Ojeda (Link)

December 2016 > I have given a seminar about the study carried out in the frame of the RESTECO project in the University of Copenhagen.



October 2016  > Our communications for the MEDECOS-AEET meeting 2017 have been accepted as oral communications. Good news to start 2017 in Seville!


July 2016 > I have been invited to give a seminar about my field of study in the Seminar Series of IRNAS-CSIC. I will talk about functional diversity of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi.

March 2016 > For next 6 months I am going to carry out a study about ectomycorrhizal fungi associated to holm oak (Quercus ilex) in the frame of the restored area in the Guadiamar river (RESTECO project). Excited to work with the “other” mycorrhizas!” / Link a RESTECO: http://www.resteco.es/en/

February 2016 > Good news! I have been awarded with the Marie Curie individual grant (H2020) to start a project on dispersal of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi. I will start next September in the University of Copenhagen.
