Abstract:

In India, cut flowers are highly demanded due to their uses in religious and aesthetic purposes. Natural VA mycorrhizal associations in plants are highly beneficial. Thus, it is very essential to characterize the biodiversity of VAM fungi in plants of economical significance. VAM spores are differentiated in the rhizosphere and act as a reference structure for species identification of these fungi. Spores of species of Glomus exhibit the most diverse morphology in family Glomaceae. In the present study, the rhizospheric soils of some ornamental plants belonging to family Asteraceae were screened. Seven species of Glomus were isolated and identified during the investigation.
