Abstract—Pot experiment was carried out to study the effect of heavy metals toxicity by Cenococcum graniforme in the establishment and survival of Pinus kesiya seedlings. Different concentration levels, viz., 0 (control), 10, 50, 100, 200 and 500 ppm of Al, Pb, Zn, Cd, Ni and Cu, were added in pots separately containing three months old pine seedlings. The study was continued for one year. The presence of ectomycorrhizal symbiont showed a positive correlation between the mycorrhizal infection and all the growth parameters of the seedlings. Study revealed that, mycorrhizal colonization decreased with the increase of heavy metal concentration. In general, ectomycorrhizal fungi exhibited a resistance to different heavy metals resulting in better growth of pine seedlings than non-mycorrhizal ones.
