The AMF Distribution in India - A Checklist

Gigaspora decipiens I.R. Hall & L.K. Abbott (1984)

Gigaspora decipiens is reported from 5 state(s) of India namely Jammu & Kashmir, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Goa and Rajasthan, 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 Gigaspora decipiens can be checked at Centre for Mycorrhizal Culture Collection (CMCC, TERI). Original description of Gigaspora decipiens 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 Gigaspora decipiens have yet not been isolated
