Dr. Lodge gathers data on fungal phylogeny that can be applied to biogeography to gain a better understanding of their relatedness to other species, whether related species share similar ecological roles, and how fungi (including invasive species and pathogens) spread and evolve.She is always looking for new or emerging forest disease problems caused by fungi. She is also interested in the fate of soil carbon derived from different fungal decomposition processes (how much is lost to the atmosphere as CO2 or stored, the form, and the function/value to forest productivity), especially in light of their responses to regional and global change
