Linda Kinkel

Linda KinkelDr Kinkel's research focuses on the ecology and evolutionary biology of plant and soil microbes and their effects on plant disease and plant productivity.  They have focused especially on the ecological and coevolutionary dynamics of antibiotic-producing bacteria, including both indigenous and inoculated populations, and how these contribute to disease suppression in both agricultural and natural habitats.
