Title CORRELATION BETWEEN FUNGAL POPULATIONS AND AMINO ACID LEVELS OF SALT DESERT PLANTS
Source Sydowia
Abstract The fungal populations of six halophytic plant species from the desert south of Iraq were investigated in relation with the levels of various amino acids determined in the shoots of each plant. The fungal populations of the succulent plant species were different from these associated with non-succulent plants. The differences in fungal populations were attributed to the levels of amino acids produced by the plants. The highest number of fungal isolates and species diversity was found on Zygophyllum coccineum which revealed high levels of tyrosine, methionine and leucine while Suaeda monica showed low contents of amino acids correlated with low fungal populations [The 4 other species were the following: Suaeda vermiculata, Salsola baryosma, Cyperus conglomeratus and Matthiola oxyceras].
