Every plant’s rhizospheres in any ecosystem has various living microorganisms, including Arbuscular Mycorrhizae Fungi (AMF). An isolation and characterization is required to investigate the species or type of the AMF. This research aim is to explain the isolation and characterization of AMF sporulation in dominant plant which is planted at Kebun Percobaan of Agriculture Faculty. The method uses descriptive-explorative. Soil samples were collected by stratified random sampling in some dominants plant rhizosphere.
The results of evaluation on soil samples shows that: 1) one genus of AMF (Glomus sp.) is identified in rhizosphere of Soya bean, Corn, Palm, Tomatoes and Alang-alang rhizosphere; 2) Acaulspora sp. and Glomus sp. is found in bananas, Red Chilly and Potatoes. Furhermore 3) Gigaspora sp., is identified in Manggis Rhizosphere.
