The AMF Distribution in India - A Checklist

Glomus globiferum Koske & C. Walker (1986)

Glomus globiferum is reported from 3 state(s) of India namely Goa, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh, 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 Glomus globiferum can be checked at Centre for Mycorrhizal Culture Collection (CMCC, TERI). Original description of Glomus globiferum is available at www.amf-phylogeny.com.
