TACF Chestnut Chat

Coming up …

Evolution of Castanea and Cryphonectria

Join us February 16, 2024, from 11:30AM – 1:00PM (EPT), for the next LIVE Chestnut Chat. In this edition, Joanna Malukiewicz will discuss the interplay in the evolution of Castanea and the chestnut blight fungus (Cryphonectria parasitica). Listen in to learn about the fascinating history of ancient natural hybridization among chestnut species across East Asia, Europe, and North America, and whether or not hybridization has played any role in the relative blight resistance or susceptibility of the extant chestnut species.
