Summary

The morphology of Ginkgo biloba L. vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizas (VAM) was investigated in natural conditions and after innoculation with Glomus epigaeum Daniels and Trappe. Morphological features of the infections were similar. The most interesting morphological feature was the presence of abundant intracellular hyphae; intercellular hyphae were rare. Synthesis tests showed the complete Glomus epigaeum life cycle, with the production of sporocarps. Natural infection of Ginkgo biloba roots is considered to be a common phenomenon, and Glomus epigaeum inoculation in controlled conditions increased growth of seedlings.
