Microbial Resource Management

Ecology and biotechnological application of anaerobic fungi, in particular for cellulolytic processes in anaerobic digestion. Use of fungi for conversion of cellulosic waste materials to valuable products and for pretreatment of cellulosic material for improved biogas production. To determine the fungal community composition involved in dead wood decay in subalpine and alpine areas
