Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi Associated With Rhizosphere of Casuarina in Morocco

The presence and diversity of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) in the rhizosphere of Casuarina trees was studied in four regions of Morocco. The results showed that all the sampled roots were mycorrhizal and various AMF structures were evident (arbuscules, vesicles, hyphae, spores, and non-specialized hyphae) in all regions. AMF colonization and diversity varied among regions, but all regions had a relatively high level. A total of 83 morphotypes belonging to 14 genera and 10 families were isolated and documented. Glomus was the most common and widespread genus found. Understanding the association of AMF with this important restoration species has implications for nursery production and outplanting strategies.
