Abstract

A survey on the status of mycorrhizal infection was carried out in three representative forest areas of jengka. Levels of root infection in individual plant species were comparatively high. The assessment also confirmed the taxonomic dominance of vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhiza (VAM) tree species in the Malaysian forest. Sixty species examined were vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal and three species were ectomycorrhizal. A significant reduction in percentage mycorrhizal infection was observed in the disturbed forest sites. Satu tinjauan telah dijalankan di tiga kawasan yang mewakili kawasan hutan Jengka untuk mengetahui status infeksi mikoriza. Tahap infeksi mikoriza pada akar di spesies tumbuhan individu adalah agak tinggi. Kajian juga mengesahkan bahawa pokok-pokok bermikoriza vasikular-arbuskular adalah taksonomi spesies unggul di hutan Malaysia. Enam puluh spesies yang diselidik adalah bermikoriza vesikular-arbuskular manakala tiga spesies berstatus etomikoriza. Pengurangan peratus infeksi mikoriza yang paling ketara ialah di kawasan-kawasan hutan terganggu.
