With the project of our faculty, the effects of coastal river zones on mycorrhizae will be investigated for the first time in our country.
With the project to be carried out by the Bartın Faculty of Forestry in the Melen Stream Basin in Düzce, the effects of the pasture ecosystem of the coastal river region on Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi will be investigated for the first time in Turkey.
Faculty Member of our Faculty of Forestry Engineering Assoc. Dr. The project, led by Şahin Palta, was deemed worthy of support within the scope of TÜBİTAK 1002-Fast Support Program. The project titled “Investigation of the Effects of Different Coastal Zones of the Büyük Melen Stream on the Change of Some Vegetation and Soil Properties” to be realized in Düzce will investigate the effects of the coastal rangeland ecosystem on sustainability.
Assoc. Dr. Melih Öztürk from the Forest Engineering Department of our Faculty, Res. See. Eren Baş will also contribute.
Providing information about the project, Assoc. Dr. Şahin Palta said, “With the supported project, the effects of coastal zones on the diversity of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi will be investigated for the first time in our country. The study will be carried out in Düzce, which has an important place in terms of soil and water resources in the Western Black Sea Region. The research will be carried out in places where Büyük Melen Stream, which is an important water source, and meadow and pasture areas that need to be managed correctly are located together. The research is necessary both because the field is handled sustainably and because it is the first study to be conducted on this subject in our country.
Pointing out that TÜBİTAK projects in Bartın Faculty of Forestry are increasing day by day and this situation must continue sustainably, Dean of Bartın Faculty of Forestry Prof. Dr. Birsen DURKAYA project manager Assoc. Dr. He congratulated the project team with Şahin Palta.
