Ms QianLi Liu
I am so honored to be a member of FABI at 2018. I am interested in the diversity of fungal pathogens and how fungal diversity affects disease management. Currently, my PhD project is focus on a serious plant pathogens, Calonectria. The genus Calonectria accommodates well-known pathogens of various agricultural, horticultural and forestry crops, worldwide. I will dedicated to the Molecular taxonomy, Genomics and Population genetics of Calonectria spp. associated with Eucalyptus spp. in South China.
Eucalyptus plantations have been developed rapidly during the past two decades and has become an integral part of the South China landscape. However, leaf and shoot blight (CLB) disease associated with Calonectria species presents a serious threat to Eucalyptus plantation in South China. My research aims to provide more information about the distribution, species diversity and pathogenicity of Calonectria species on Eucalyptus plantations and nurseries in South China, and the population genetics of the most prevalent and pathogenic species of Calonectria in South China will also be studied.
