Occurrence and Distribution of Mycorrhiza in Industrial Areas of Kota, Rajasthan, India

September 9, 2021 Environment and Earth Science 0

Most vascular plants benefit from arbascular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) because they aid in plant growth and survival. The goal of this study was to compare the variety of AMFs in disturbed and undisturbed soil in Kota, Rajasthan, and their involvement in the ecological restoration of industrial waste disposal sites and degraded land. Rhizosphere soil samples were taken from four different sites: one natural soil (undisturbed soil), three industrial waste disposal sites (disturbed sites), and spore density was measured. Reduction in In comparison to the undisturbed site, the overall spore density in industrial waste disposal sites shows that degraded soil properties have a negative impact on the mycorrhizal association, whereas an increase in spore density of some mycorrhiza species in disturbed sites indicates the possibility of selecting a host plant for revegetation in restoration efforts. In the rehabilitation of degraded areas, native leguminous plants with a high to extremely high level of VAM colonisation can be utilised.
