2008-09: Welcome Fernandez & Prieto, Visiting Researchers.

September 2008 – Welcome, Samantha Fernandez and Maria Prieto, Visiting Researchers.

The Lutzoni Lab is excited to welcome two visiting researchers to Duke University: Samantha Fernandez and Maria Prieto. Both hail from the country of Spain, and have come to our lab to learn new techniques and hone their skills for studying the systematics of lichen-forming fungi. Samantha’s research concentrates on the lichen genus Diploschistes, while Maria is interested primarily in the systematics ofCatapyrenium (sensu lato). The relationships between the members of these genera remain quite difficult to elucidate, and the results obtained by both of these researchers will surely represent major contributions to the field of lichen systematics.
