The AMF Distribution in India - A Checklist

Rhizophagus manihotis (R.H. Howeler, Sieverd. & N.C. Schenck) C. Walker & Schuessler (2010) ≡ Glomus manihotis R.H. Howeler, Sieverd. & N.C. Schenck (1984)]

Rhizophagus manihotis is reported from 4 state(s) of India namely Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka and Assam, 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).
