Specialties of Ivano Brunner:
Processes of fine roots of trees, of ectomycorrhizas, and of fungal hyphae an its interactions with soils

Belowground carbon pools including tree roots in forest soils
Forest soils belong to the largest carbon storage reservoirs in Switzerland. This reservoir is filled by tree roots when they die, and the process which supplies the forest soils with the carbon from dying roots is called root turnover. It is our aim to investigate that turnover processes, mainly from tree fine roots, to learn more about the carbon pools in forest soils and its dynamics.
