Ms Marizanne Jones
Biochemistry, Genetics and Microbiology
My Honours degree was focussed on mycology, under the supervision of Dr Neriman Yilmaz-Visagie. I worked on the fungal diversity found in the soil of the Namibian desert fairy circles to compare the species within the circles, as well as between the circles. The study aimed at expanding our knowledge on the fungal species found in the circles, as well as discovering possible novel species of fungi in the soil.
