Biodiversitas 17: 377-383. The aim of this study was to isolate and identifyRhizoctonia-like fungi associated with the roots of the terrestrial orchids Dendrobium lancifolium A. Rich var. papuanum and Calanthe triplicata (Willem) Ames in Papua. The fungi were isolated from the transversal section of the orchid roots…

Effects of the mycorrhizal fungus Ceratobasidium sp. AR2 on growth and flavonoid accumulation in Anoectochilus roxburghii

The findings highlighted the molecular basis of the effects of mycorrhizal fungi on flavonoid biosynthesis in A. roxburghii and provided novel insights into methods to improve the yield and quality of the plant.

An Overview on Orchid Endophytes

Both the role such endophytes play and how such symbiotic partner scan be used in the plant tissue culture technique to help conserve and even commercialize various species of orchid are considered.

An Overview on Orchids and their Interaction with Endophytes

Orchids, being one of nature’s most magnificent as well as abundant plant species, are often a bit of an enigma because their seeds lack endosperm and rely on endophytes for seedlings, development,

Current Progress on Endophytic Microbial Dynamics on Dendrobium Plants

This chapter aims to capture the full range of studies conducted on orchid transformation through endophytic microbes with a view of providing new perspectives for future plant–microbes interaction investigations.

Biogeography and Ecology of Tulasnellaceae

Tulasnella species appear to be associated with orchids on a global scale, and may occur in many forest ecosystems as lignicolous fungi.

Biogeography of Mycorrhizal Symbiosis



Identity and Specificity of Rhizoctonia-Like Fungi from Different Populations of Liparis japonica (Orchidaceae) in Northeast China

The findings indicated the high mycorrhizal specificity existed in L. japonica species regardless of habitats at least in Northeast China, and supported the wide distribution of this fungal partner, and implied that the decline of L.

Endophytic fungi from Pecteilis susannae (L.) Rafin (Orchidaceae), a threatened terrestrial orchid in Thailand

Eight endophytic fungi were isolated from roots of the threatened terrestrial orchid, Pecteilis susannae (L.) Rafin, and phylogenogenetic analysis indicated that seven isolates belonged to the genus Epulorhiza and one to Fusarium.

Diversity and host specificity of endophytic Rhizoctonia-like fungi from tropical orchids.

The internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region of nuclear ribosomal DNA from 26 isolates was sequenced and identified four fungal lineages, all related to Ceratobasidium spp.

Isolation and Identification of Mycorrhizal Fungi from Eleven Terrestrial Orchids

Seven genera and fourteen species of mycorrhizal fungi were identified and nuclear staining revealed that all strains were binucleate except for W. circinata which was multinucleate.

Endophytic Colletotrichum species from Bletilla ochracea (Orchidaceae), with descriptions of seven new speices

Thirty-six strains of endophytic Colletotrichum species were isolated from leaves of Bletilla ochracea Schltr. (Orchidaceae) collected from 5 sites in Guizhou, China. Seventeen different species,

From the seventeen mycorrhizal fungi, 3 isolates were identified, namely Rhizoctonia sp.

Inefficient photosynthesis in the Mediterranean orchid Limodorum abortivum is mirrored by specific association to ectomycorrhizal Russulaceae

Results demonstrate that Limodorum species with inefficient photosynthesis specifically associate with ectomycorrhizal fungi, and appear to have adopted a nutrition strategy similar to that known from achlorophyllous orchids.

Mycorrhizal Fungi from Protocorms, Seedlings and Mature Plants of the Eastern Prairie Fringed Orchid, Platanthera leucophaea (Nutt.) Lindley: A Comprehensive List to Augment Conservation

A comprehensive list of the 75 mycorrhizal fungi isolated from P. leucophaea protocorms, seedlings and mature plants during the past 10 y from sites in Illinois and Michigan shows that Ceratorhiza appears to be an ubiquitous associate of this genus, and recommends that the fungi used in conservation should be limited to strains acquired from the same or nearby populations.
