about the lab

The Forest Pathology Lab conducts research on the diagnosis, etiology and management of tree diseases. Spanning scales, from molecular to landscape, and combining applied and basic research our work aims to better understand pathogen-tree interactions and reduce the impact of invasive diseases that threaten trees worldwide.

We are part of the School of Forest Resources & Conservation's Forest Health group, the ProForests Group, and work closely with the Forest Entomology laboratory under Dr. Jiri Hulcr.
