Abstract

VESICULAR ARBUSCULAR MYCORRHIZA (VAM) ASSOCIATION OF MOUNTAIN FLORA OF JABALPUR REGION

.P.Kori, Jaya Singh*, N. Raipuria & R.K. Verma

ABSTRACT

Mycorrhizas are broadly classified into endomycorrhiza present on. the externally and internally, respectively. The endomycorrhizae are aseptate fungi forming vesicles .and arbuscules hence the name VAM. VAM are obligate symbionts, nonhost specific, and .occur over a broad ecological range from aquatic to desert environment. They are common in tropical temprate and arctic regions.Exploration and exploitation of mountain plants by the tribals of the region is one of the practices in the cultivation of herbal plants to maintain a steady supply to support the increasing demand due to a decline in their natural population. Vesicular arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi are associated with more than 80% of terrestrial plant families. (Rinaddi et al 2008) and have unique properties of enhancing plant establishment, growth and disease resistance. (Smith et al 2006) Also, VAM fungi are known to improve the survival and establishment of tissue culture plantlets, (Verma et al 1994) The purpose of the present Paper was to investigate the VAM fungal association in certain mountain plants of the district, Jabalpur so that VAM fungi could be exploited in future.

Keywords: Vesicular Arbuscular Mycorrhiza, Mountain flora, Jabalpur.
