Abstract

The biodiversity of Indian forest ecosystem is under serious threat from the last two decade and the endemic plants of Western Ghats, Eastern Ghats as well as few important keystone species which also form climax species in Himalayan regions are facing elimination due to habitat loss. Causes for rapid depletion of forest ecosystem in India has been due to over exploitation, overgrazing, poor regeneration, widespread logging, and rapid increase in human population, tourism, removal of leaf and wood litter from the forests floor, demand for fuel wood, fodder, timber and diversion of forestlands for agriculture. Intensive or extensive inventorying and monitoring “hot spots” of biodiversity has thus become a difficult task to achieve for Indian foresters and ecologists. Ectomycorrhizal diversity with important tree species of India is still in the exploratory phase. Any amount of ectomycorrhizal association in tree seedlings is hence needed rather than no ectomycorrhizal association and some species of ectomycorrhizal fungi can be more useful to trees, in certain geographical and environmental conditions, than others. Therefore these fungal species should be effectively managed and applied
