Various types of microorganisms are present in soil, play vital roles in numerous physiological activities. These dynamic activities are mediated by association of microorganisms participating in saprophytic, pathogenic and symbiotic association with root. Mycorrhizal fungi are ubiquitous, occurring in all natural ecosystems in most climatic zones throughout the world. An investigation has been made about the vesicular arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi colonization in two locally available medicinal plants such as Cassia auriculata and Calotropis procera were screened for the occurrence and association of VAM fungi. Both the plants screened in the study harbored VAM fungi. Of the two plants Calotropis procera supported maximum number (9) of VAM fungi. VA mycorrhizal fungi isolated from the two medicinal plants belong to 4 different genera viz. Acaulospora, Entrophspora, Glomus and Scutellospora. From these four different genera Glomus was more abundant than the others.
