Abstract

Ectomycorrhizal fungi, Scleroderma spp., is potential to promote the growth of seedlings for forestry plants. This research explored the Scleroderma spp., from rhizosphere of Fagaceae in School of Biology forest, investigated the compatibility of Scleroderma spp., with Lithocarpus urceolaris seedlings and studied its effectiveness. The result showed that there were three species of Scleroderma: Scleroderma sinnamariense, Scleroderma columnare and Scleroderma citrinum. Lithocarpus urceolaris inoculated with Scleroderma sinnamariense, resulted in the highest growth of plants (56.55 cm) compared to S. columnare, S. citrinum and control. Diameters of seedlings inoculated with the three species of Scleroderma did not show significant different but they were significant different from control. The three species of Scleroderma had the same growth of colonizations (30%) classified as middle colonizations. There were changes in morphology and anatomy of roots from the infection of three species of Scleroderma. Mantle was clearly observed to cover the root surface and the mycelia formed the Hartig net. There was compatibility between L. urceolaris and three species of Scleroderma. It is suggested that inoculating these Scleroderma to L. urceolaris is necessary to increase the quality of growth seedling.
