Foroutan, A. & Jafary, N.

Abstract

In this present study 8 sites including Baneshwar, Dongarvadi, Dapoli-Dabhol road, Film institute-Pune, Karad, Mulshi, Pirangut and Poultry training center-Pune in Maharashtra state of India were selected by random to investigate the diversity of the heart and root rot fungi with special reference to Ganoderma check for this species in other resources and Phellinus check for this species in other resources species. On park and roadside trees. The healthy and infected trees (Trees associated with Conk/basidiocarp of Ganoderma and Phellinus) were counted by means of transect/quadrat. The tree communities was recorded as: Acacia nilotica check for this species in other resources , Albizzia lebbek check for this species in other resources Benth., Artocarpus integrifolia check for this species in other resources , Azadirachta indica check for this species in other resources ., Buhinia purpurea check for this species in other resources , Caesalpinia coriuria check for this species in other resources , Casuarina equisetifolia check for this species in other resources , Dalbergia melanoxylon check for this species in other resources , Delonix regia check for this species in other resources , Ficus bengalensis check for this species in other resources , Gliricidia sepium check for this species in other resources , Mangifera indica check for this species in other resources , Peltophorum ferrugineum check for this species in other resources , Swietenia mahogany check for this species in other resources , and Tamaridus indica check for this species in other resources (more popular trees in the park and roadside). The diversity of the studied locations was found to be maximum in Dapoli-Dabhol road. The highest number tree species was found at Poultry training center-Pune. Mangifera indica was dominating amongst the studied tree species. Film Institute-Pune, showed to have the highest number of conk on the infected tree. Phellinus fastuosus check for this species in other resources was the most dominant fungi.
