University of California, Davis

Email: dlawrence@ucdavis.edu

Ph.D., Plant Pathology, University of Arizona

Dan’s research interests include exploring fungal biodiversity, molecular phylogenetics, and fungal niche adaptation/selection.  In the Trouillas lab, Dan is unveiling the diversity of Cytospora species associated with decline of orchard crops including almond, cherry, pistachio, prune, and walnut in California.  Additional projects include exploring the diversity and ecology of other phytopathogenic fungi including members of the Botryosphaeriaceae on woody hosts.

 


Dr. Renaud Travadon
Assistant Project Scientist
Department of Plant Pathology
University of California, Davis

Email: rtravadon@ucdavis.edu

Ph.D., National Institute for Agricultural Research, Rennes, France,

Renaud  joined the Department of Plant Pathology at UC Davis in 2009 where he started working on the complex of grapevine trunk diseases. His research interests include infection biology, population genetics, plant tolerance to biotic stresses, epidemiology and ecology. In the Trouillas laboratory, Dr. Travadon is elucidating the etiology of a sudden decline of sweet cherry trees recently observed in California, as well as the population biology of a re-emerging canker disease on almond trees caused by Ceratocystis.
