SHORT NOTE

Eucalyptus

despite the fact that Eucalyptus seedlings do form both endomycorrhiza and ectomycorrhiza early during their developement. In the present study, all the structures of arbuscular mycorrhiza were observed within roots of four Eucalyptus species of 15, 17 and more than 50 years old at three different sites in northern Algeria. Arbuscular mycorrhiza frequency was assessed in roots of 15-years old Eucalyptus camaldulensis species, during two periods in 2 consecutive years (July and November of 1996 and 1997). Intensity of root colonization was dependent on the time of sampling and attained 42% in July 1997.
