Transcript of Habenaria (Orchidaceae) do Itacolomi, MG
I would like to express my very great appreciation to Dr João Batista and Dr Aristóteles Goes for their valuable and constructive suggestions during the planning and development of this research work.
Special thanks to the laboratories:
Laboratório de Botânica Sistemática e Molecular de Plantas; Laboratório Molecular e Computacional de Fungos;
Laboratório de Informática de Biossistemas e Genômica (Fiocruz).
The financial support given by
Thank you for your attention!
Based on the literature we expected to find a variety of fungi related to symbionts
and (1) What is this diversity of fungi for orchid which have wide distribution and endemic? (2) How these fungi may play a key role in determining orchid distribution?
The association between endophytic fungi and orchid roots of genus
Federal University of Minas Gerais
This association between fungi and orchid is well known by science since fungi make it possible for plants to inhabit several environments and keep them from getting infected with pathogens.
160 species in Brazil;
The genus is widespread throughout Brazil, being particularly frequent in Cerrado and campos rupestres vegetation;
104 species in MG state;
Wide distribution VS. Endemic
Identify which are the fungi that live in association with orchids and if such species interfere in the plant's capacity to colonize their environment.
The area studied:
Serra do Cipó;
Serra da Moeda,
DNA extraction from roots and soil;
Identification of fungi by Pipercraft (Software).
