Influence of Glomus Species on Enhancement of Metabolites in in Vitro Regenerated Withania Somnifera (L.) Dunal
AM fungi potentially represent an alternative way of promoting growth of this important medicinal plant and their chemical constituents and an increase in primary metabolites like proteins, carbohydrates, amino acids and secondary metabolite like Phenolics is revealed. Expand
Effect of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Inoculations on Seedling Growth and Biomass Productivity of Two Bamboo Species
The results showed that utilization of effective AM fungi can enhance the productivity of bamboo in the region. Expand
Phosphorus threshold for arbuscular mycorrhizal colonization of crops and tree seedlings
Results showed that the recorded plant growth peaks were due to AM colonization of crops and tree rhizosphere, and inoculating plants with a suitable AM inoculant could result in a benefit comparable to high P input and lead to a significant saving of inorganic P fertilizer. Expand
Manual for the identification of va mycorrhizal fungi
In AM, the fungi obtain carbohydrates from the plant for vegetative growth and spore Schenck NC, Perez Y. Manual for identification of VA mycorrhizal fungi. Manual for the Identification of VaExpand
Field Response of Maize to a VAM Fungus and Water Management
A 3-yr field study that tested the effects of mycorrhizae and water management on the growth and grain yield of maize and found that inoculation improved plant nutrient uptake and affected the water relations of plants grown in growth chambers and greenhouses. Expand
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal diversity in some commonly occurring medicinal plants of Western Ghats, Goa region
Simpson’s and Shannon Weiner diversity index studies carried out in North and South Goa exhibited less variation in both the sites, indicating a stable and a diverse plant community. Expand
Mycorrhizal Symbiosis
The term mycorrhiza is rooted from two Greek words myco meaning fungi and Rrhiza meaning root and its’ meaning in reality means symbiosis between a fungus and root. Mycorrhiza is described as aExpand
Influence of Species of Vesicular-Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi and Phosphorus Nutrition on Growth, Development, and Mineral Nutrition of Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.)
Plant P deficiency did not alter the shoot concentration of N, K, Mg, or Fe; however, the total accumulation of these mineral nutrients in shoots of P-stressed plants was substantially less than that of high-P plants. Expand
Soil phosphate status modifies response of mycorrhizal and non-mycorrhizal Senecio vulgaris L. to infection by the rust, Puccinia lagenophorae Cooke.

Rust infection did not become established on plants which were phosphorus limited, but on hosts fed with medium or high levels of P, the proportion of total leaf number exhibiting infection was a function of leaf production, and the effects of the rust were less marked in the mycorrhizal plants.

Spores of mycorrhizal Endogone species extracted from soil by wet sieving and decanting
Six types of spores are described which are believed to represent distinct species of Endogone, and in preliminary inoculation experiments 4 of the 6 formed endotrophic mycorrhiza: three of these formed arbuscles and vesicles, and one formed only arbuscules. Expand
