The impact magnitude of altitude gradient on microbial community and diversity has been under study since last few decades whereas bacteria has been the focus of most studies with relatively less spot light on fungi. Being a vital part of macro and micro ecosystem, rhizosphere fungi plays a vital role in organic matter decomposition, relative abundance of plant species and impact on plant growth and development. We observed the rhizosphere soil fungal community patterns across the altitude gradient in 15 sites of Yunnan province by selecting Duchesnea indica as the host plant using Illumina MiSeq sequencing of the fungal ITS1 region. We determined the fungal community composition and structure. We surprisingly found that rhizosphere soil fungal diversity of D. indica increases across the altitude gradient. There was a slight diversity difference among high and medium site samples with medium sites being on the top. Furthermore the rhizosphere soil fungal community composition and structure kept changing along the altitudinal gradient. Taxonomic results showed that phylum diversity range was maximum at high altitude sites besides Ascomycota, Basidiomycota, Zygomycota and Glomeromycota as the most dominant fungal phyla.

A mitosporic fungal genus commonly isolated from soil. Some species are the cause of wilt diseases in many different plants.
The collective designation of three organizations with common membership: the European Economic Community (Common Market), the European Coal and Steel Community, and the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom). It was known as the European Community until 1994. It is primarily an economic union with the principal objectives of free movement of goods, capital, and labor. Professional services, social, medical and paramedical, are subsumed under labor. The constituent countries are Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

A mitosporic fungal genus occurring in soil or decaying plant matter. It is structurally similar to Penicillium.
A mitosporic fungal genus frequently found in soil and on wood. It is sometimes used for controlling pathogenic fungi. Its teleomorph is HYPOCREA.

DNA sequencing is the process of determining the precise order of nucleotides within a DNA molecule. During DNA sequencing, the bases of a small fragment of DNA are sequentially identified from signals emitted as each fragment is re-synthesized from a ...
