Abstract—Seedlings of Pinus insularis and Quercus griffithii with ectomycorrhizae formed by Suillus bovinus, Boletus edulis and Scleroderma citrinum were studied in two different stages of degraded jhum lands. The use of fungal inoculums revealed an increased uptake of phosphorus by the mycorrhizal seedlings as compared to un-inoculated control. The formation of extensive network of fungal mycelium appears to have a positive impact on the increased absorption of nutrients. Ectomycorrhizal fungi assist in the uptake of phosphorus by extending their mycelia beyond the phosphorus depletion zone where the unassociated roots cannot reach. A significant variation (p<0.01) in the uptake of phosphorus was observed between the mycorrhizal and non-mycorrhizal seedlings.
