Image: Dr. Anny Chung, Haines Family Assistant Professor in Plant Biology, was featured in Episode 423 of the acclaimed podcast "In Defense of Plants" by internationally-recognized blogger and podcaster Dr. Matt Candeias. Read the summary below: “It is impossible to make broad generalizations about the complex relationships between plants and microbes, but such challenges have not stopped Dr. Anny Chung from studying them. As you will hear, there is a wide spectrum of possibilities between pest and mutualist, and where any plant/microbe combination falls on that line can depend heavily on context. Moreover, trying to understand how these relationships change when entire ecosystems change has never been more important. Join us as we dive into the amazingly complex world of how plants and microbes interact.” You can listen to the podcast interview on "Plant-Microbe Interactions are Complex" here.
