Distribution and diversity of alpine lichens: biotic and abiotic factors influencing alpine lichen communities in the northeast Olympic and North Cascade Mountains
Alpine lichens from six specific sites in the northeastern Olympic and North Cascade Mountains were studied. Sites included Elk Mountain, Deer Park, and Buckhorn cirque from the Olympic Mountains; and Skyline Divide, Slate Peak and the Tatie Peak area of the North Cascade Mountains. Lichens and vascular plants, and bryophytes ...
The biology and taxonomy of Pacific Northwest species of Phaeocollybia Heim (Agaricales, Cortinariaceae)
Investigation of the agaric genus Phaeocollybia (Cortinariaceae) in British Columbia, Washington, Oregon and California has led to a better understanding of the biology of the genus and resulted in a taxonomic revision of Pacific Northwest species. Discovery of mycelial and pseudorhizal connections to mantle-sheathed rootlet ...
Host use and diversification in symbiotic polychaetes
I studied development and larval biology, host use, and gamete interactions in three obligately symbiotic polychaetes in the genus Arctonoe (Family Polynoidae). The three polychaetes are ectosymbionts of other marine invertebrates, and within the Puget Sound region, their host ranges do not overlap. Except for A. fragilis, ...
