Jane E. Stewart


Associate Professor of Plant Pathology


Agricultural Biology


Fungal Biology and Genetics, forest health, tree pathology, fungal pathogen epidemiology.

Jane Stewart’s research interests include: understanding the biology, ecology and genetics of emerging tree/plant pathogenic fungi using population genetics and genomic methods, studying the interactions of plant and fungi that govern variation in host specialization, pathogenicity, and virulence, and understanding genomic drivers of fungal species delimitation and divergence with a focus on pathogens important to Colorado’s forests, shade and fruit trees, and forests worldwide.
