Abstract:

Endophytes are the microbes that colonize the healthy tissues of plant. Endophytes associated with Mangifera indica (mango) are less understood. In this study, endophytic fungi were isolated fromten different mango varieties viz., Alphonso, Totapuri, Neelam, Anfas, Willard, Badam model, Khaderi, Pancharasi, White Sari and KisanBhog from Bengaluru, Karnataka, India. Endophytic fungi were isolated fromleaf and stem tissues. Nine endophytic fungi were isolated from Alphonso out of which four were from leaf and five were from stem tissues. Two endophytic fungi were isolated from the leaf tissue of Totapuri, and five from the stem tissue. From Neelam, only four endophytic fungi were isolated from stem tissue and no endophytic fungi grew from the leaf tissue. One endophytic fungi was isolated from leaf and stem tissue each from Anfas, Willard, Badam Model, Kadari, Pancharasi and White sari, whereas two fungi were isolated from leaf tissue of KisanBogh and one from stem tissue. The isolates were studied for to their morphological characters and naming was done based on the variety and the part isolated.
