Ambrosia Fungi - Harrington Lab

Ambrosia fungi are a diverse group of species associated with ambrosia beetles, insects that rely on fungal agriculture to survive. They are currently known to be in two major groups: Raffaelea in the Ophiostomatales, and several genera within the Microascales, including Ambrosiella, Meredithiella, and Phialophoropsis in the Ceratocystidaceae and Fusarium. This site aims to be a source of information for all known species in both genera as well as a resource for methods for the successful isolation and identification of these fungi from beetle specimens.

The Baum Lab

Research in the Baum lab focuses on the compatible interaction between cyst nematodes and their hosts with particular emphasis on the soybean cyst nematode (Heterodera glycines) and the sugar beet cyst nematode (H. schachtii). To a smaller extent, some projects are dealing with the root-knot nematodes, Meloidogyne spp. This group of so-called sedentary endoparasitic phytonematodes represents the most damaging group of plant-parasitic nematode and is responsible for billions of annual losses.

Department of Agricultural Education and Studies

The Department of Agricultural Education and Studies has as its focus the teaching and learning processes. All three elements of the land-grant philosophy - learning, discovery, and engagement - are part of the department's emphasis on the educational processes, and how these processes impact our clientele in a variety of agricultural settings.

Iowa Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit

The Cooperative Research Units (CRU) Program provides federal agencies the opportunity to access fish and wildlife expertise available at 40 Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Units (Units) and cooperating faculty at host universities. Federal agencies issue intra and inter agency agreements to US Geological Survey (USGS) for specific projects and informational needs. The CRU Headquarters office and USGS Contracting then issue a Research Work Order to a Unit and its host university, to conduct the work specified for the agreed upon funding.
