Abstract

The mycorrhizal status of plants in a mixed deciduous forest from the Great Hungarian Plain was investigated. The sampling area is protected as the red-list Botrychium virginianum (Ophioglossaceae) lives there; its sporophyte was also studied regarding its mycorrhizal status. Roots of forty-nine plant species were collected and their endogenous fungal structures were described. The rate of the endomycorrhizal colonization was estimated and the colonization type was determined. 78% of the plants were mycorrhizal. As the sampling area was a habitat of Terfezia terfezioides we looked for characteristic endogenous structures of this fungus. Twelve plant species were supposed to be mycorrhizal partners of Terfezia terfezioides.
