Eic Otto

Eric comes to the University of Minnesota after spending 2 years in the Peace Corps working in a rural area of Ghana on agricultural and forestry projects.

My research is on Heterobasidion root rot of pines. Although present in other parts of the United States, Heterobasidion irregulare is a new invasive disease in Minnesota. Research will focus on determining the distribution of this pathogen in the state, studies on its biology and evaluating new biological control methods.
