Mycorrhizal status of some desert plants and correlation with edaphic factors

Mycorrhizal status of some desert plants and correlation with edaphic factors

Nippon Kingakukai Kaiho 30(2): 231-238

Roots and rhizosphere soils of major plants, Anisociadium lanatum, Horwoodia dicksoniae, Anthemis deserti, Rhazya stricta, Panicum turgidum and Tripleurospermum auriculatum, from two locations (Nsah and Al-hsia) close to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, were collected and examined for vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhiza (VAM). Spores were extracted from the two soils and identified as those of Glomus fasciclatum and Glomus mosseae. However, G. mosseae was the dominant vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus in the sand dunes around Riyadh. The only edaphic factor which seemed to correlate with the dominance of G. mosseae was alkalinity.
