Maria da Luz Calado is conducting a Ph.D. in Microbiology by the University of Lisbon, starting in 2010 within Plant-Soil Ecology of cE3c. She is conducting the project Marine fungal communities associated with standing plants of Spartina maritima (Curtis) Fernald, under the supervision of Prof. Doutora Margarida Barata (Faculty of Sciences of University of Lisbon) and Prof. Doutor Ka-Lai Pang (National Taiwan Ocean University). Maria da Luz Calado Ph.D. project aims to contribute to filling knowledge gaps in diversity, biogeography and ecology of marine fungi, particularly of fungal communities associated with standing plants of one of the most dominant macrophytes of Portuguese temperate salt marshes, Spartina maritima.
