This study was focussed on the AM (Arbuscular mycorrhizal) fungal diversity in the saline-sodic soils based on native spore density, MPN assay and identification through spore morphology showed existence of different genera in the rhizosphere of neem and bamboo. The physico-chemical analysis of the native soils revealed that they are saline-sodic with the pH ranging from 8.7 +/- 0.50 to 8.8 +/- 0.51 and habituated two different species viz. Glomus and Gigaspora.
