The AMF Distribution in India - A Checklist

Acaulospora nicolsoni C. Walker, L.E. Reed & F.E. Sanders (1984)

Acaulospora nicolsoni is reported from 8 state(s) of India namely Karnataka, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Goa, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh and Uttarakhand*, GPS location for which is shown in map. Data can also be searched by location by clicking distribution map in menu checklist. A conclusion about their occurrence has been drawn on basis of culture based studies (bibliography given below). Availability of live culture of Acaulospora nicolsoni can be checked at Centre for Mycorrhizal Culture Collection (CMCC, TERI). Original description of Acaulospora nicolsoni is available at www.amf-phylogeny.com.
Taxonomically reliable and clean sequences spanning small subunit (SSU) rRNA, Internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and large subunit rRNA region isolated from live cultures of AM fungal spores of Acaulospora nicolsoni have yet not been isolated
