Concentrations of iron and manganese that exceed critical limits in soil and plant provide opportunities for microorganisms to become resistant. The aim of this study was to identify endomycorrhizal fungi from areas contaminated with iron and manganese for use as biostarter for phytorizoremediation programs. This research was conducted in two phases at April 2019, namely taking rhizosphere from Chromolaena odorata, Melastoma affine dan Spathoglottis plicata in Sorowako, Indonesia; and the second phase is to isolate and identify endomycorrhizal fungal spores in the Microbiology Laboratory, Center for Environmental and Forestry Research and Development in Makassar, Indonesia. The results showed that the genus Acaulospora was more dominant in areas that were contaminated with iron and manganese, and were able to adapt and survive compared to other genera.

Keywords: Acaulospora Fungus Gigaspora Heavy metal Phytorhizoremediation
