Interesting Happenings:

On July 1, 1998. the Dept of Plant Pathology was merged with the plant specialists from Plant, Soil and Environmental Sciences and members of the Biology Dept to form one department, which has been named the Dept of Plant Sciences.  Currently the department is housed in Johnson Hall on the Bozeman campus.  Upon the completion of the Ag. Bioscience building in the spring of 1999 many of the faculty will move into the new facility. 

On July 1, 2000 the name of the Plant Sciences department was officially changed to the Department of Plant Sciences & Plant Pathology.

December 31, 2001 - Don Mathre officially retired from the department and assumed emeritus status.  He will be working with Cathy Cripps helping to improve production efficiency of Shiitake mushrooms for the commercial market. 

May 1, 2003 - Dr Norm Weeden stepped down as Dept Chair and Dr John Sherwood will take over the Dept reins.  John joined the old Plant Pathology Dept in 1988 and currently is a Full Professor with research interests in molecular biology of smut fungi and Fusarium scab.

January 2004 - Dr Alan Dyer has been hired to lead the soil-borne disease project which had been headed  by Dr. Don Mathre from ~1966 until 1999.  Alan is a recent graduate of the University of Minnesota and will be starting his new position in mid-March, 2004. 

August 2006 - Dr. Mary Burrows joined the dept as an extension plant pathologist.  She has filled the position previously held by Jack Riesselman before his retirement.
