Soil depth (0-20cm) did not influence soil factors though fungal diversity, abundance and evenness varied with depth suggesting the influence of substrate availability.
Occurrence of Trichoderma spp.
and distribution in soil is determined by a number of interacting biotic and abiotic factors. SUMMARY Agricultural intensification has been cited as one of the causes of loss of biodiversity.
Taita Taveta, a coastal highland region is such like area which has experienced land conversion from forest cover into farmlands with high soil intensification.
Soil samples were collected across seven land use types and analysed for Trichoderma occurrence.
The fungus was recovered from the soil using the dilution plate and soil washing technique.
The remaining soil ...
