Abstract


Urban parks are ecosystems with a dynamic directed by human intervention. Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi are symbionts with higher plants, with role in increasing the amount of nutrients needed to plant development. In roots, the fungi develops various structures for transfer or storage of nutrients. The grasses developed in the parks of the Cluj-Napoca city present typical mycorrhizal structures, including the two morphotypes of arbuscules. The colonization rate identified in the analyzed samples is over 75%, indicating a high number of propagules in soil. The dependence of arbuscles is higher to intensity than colonization frequency.
