Abstract:
Background and Objective: Ectomycorrhyza is associated with most trees, including the pine tree. The interaction between ectomycorhizzal fungi with pine trees has been reported in some species from other regions but none from Indonesia, especially in Bandung (West Java). This study aims to determine the diversity of ectomycorrhizal fungi found under pine (Pinus merkusii) stands at various locations in the Bandung area. Material and Methods: The method used in this study includes exploration, collection of the fungal fruiting body, isolation and identification using morphological and molecular approaches. The exploration site was based on the presence of the pine tree in seven locations in Bandung. Results: Seven samples of fruiting bodies representing each location were collected from under stands of pine tree, namely BK-01 (Bojong Koneng), GS-02 (Ganesha campus), TC-03 (Taman Cibeunying), CK-04 (Cikutra), SK-05 (Sukaluyu), CS-06 (Cisitu) and PP-07 (Perum Pahlawan). Conclucion: The identification results based on morphology and the ITS DNA character show that all ectomycorhizal samples belong to the order of Boletales, family of Suillaceae and genera of Suillus. The ectomycorrhizal fungi from Bojong Koneng, Ganesha campus and Perum Pahlawan are identified as Suillus placidus, while the ectomycorrhizal fungi from Taman Cibeunying, Cisitu, Cikutra and Sukaluyu are identified as Suillus granulatus. This study has clearly shown that the diversity of ectomycorrhizal fungi were found under the pine trees in the area of Bandung is a fungi with the name of the species Suillus placidus and Suillus granulatus.
