The present investigation was carried out at HNB Garhwal Central University, Srinagar Garhwal to evaluate the mycorrizal association of VAM/AM fungi with different medicinal plants. Twenty nine medicinal plants were selected at two experimental sites i.e., Srinagar and Chauras for the experiment. Spores of VAM/AM fungi were isolated from the soil of the selected plants and counted under the binocular microscope. Occurrence of sporocarp, peridium, size and shape of spores was also examined. The experimental findings demonstrated that number of spores per 10 gram of soil was maximum (83) under soil rhizosphere of Allium cepa; whereas, the soil rhizosphere below Cassia fistula and Mentha longifolia had the minimum number of spores (20) per 10 gram of soil.
