Abstract

The present study was undertaken in the mined areas for the survey of AM fungal diversity. Total of Sixteen AM fungal species were identified in the mined areas of Yallapur. The spores were classified into the following genera: Glomus (12), Acaulospora (3), Gigaspora (2) and Scutellospora (2). AM fungi belonging to genus Glomus were found to be dominant in the study site. The more value for per cent mycorrhizal colonization was observed in plants belonging to poaceae member. The pot experiments were conducted with inoculation of AM fungi and different levels of mine spoil at Department of Botany, Karnatak University, Dharwad, India. The plants treated with minimum amount of mine spoil and AM fungi increased plant growth responses and mycorrhizal colonization, but the higher concentration of mine spoil results reduced plant growth
