Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (Glomeromycota) associated with roots of plants

Sławomir Kowalczyk, Janusz Błaszkowski


The results of studies of the occurrence of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) and arbuscular mycorrhizae of the phylum Glomeromycota associated with roots of 31 cultivated, uncultivated and protected plant species growing at 103 sites of the Lubuskie province NW Poland are presented and discussed. The AMF most frequently found were members of the genus Glomus. Other relatively frequently revealed fungi were Scutellospora spp. Spore populations of AMF generally were more abundant and diverse in cultivated soils. Most protected plant species harboured AMF.
