NIK GRUNWALD TO RECEIVE APS RUTH ALLEN AWARD

 

Nik Grünwald is widely recognized as a leading international authority on the evolution and population genetics of emerging and reemerging plant pathogens, with a particular emphasis on the genus Phytophthora. He has made numerous seminal contributions that have substantially altered our thinking about the biology and evolutionary history of plant pathogens. His work defined clonal lineages of the sudden oak death pathogen Phytophthora ramorum and demonstrated its patterns of migration and repeated emergence on two continents.
