More recently, Brian has collaborated with us in connection with the NSF-supported Boletales project. Through this collaboration, we have developed a module for Brian's AP biology class on the monotrope symbiosis (see the Outreach pages). In 2006, Brian joined our lab on a Research Experiences for Teachers supplement to the Boletales project. Brian's work in our lab is described in an article in The Science Teacher (PDF).
