Some members of the family Amaranthaceae, which has mostly been reported as non-mycorrhizal, were examined for a symbiotic association with mycorrhizae in the semiarid and arid zones. Ten species belonging to five genera, Achyranthes, Aerva, Alternanthera, Amaranthus, and Celosia were examined, using 1.0-cm long root standards. Intercellular hyphae, vesicles and arbuscules were observed in the root cortex. The number of different types of spores in the rhizosphere soil of different plants… CONTINUE READING
