Abstract: Eight collections of the endemic Hawaiian angiosperm Gunnera
petaloidea ssp. kauaiensis were examined for mycorrhizae. Soil-inhabiting roots
of all specimens possessed extensive vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizae 01AM).
Aerial roots lacked mycorrhizae. Soil from the root zones of the plants contained
propagules of VAM fungi, and spores of two species of VAM fungi were found
in the soil. The discovery of mycorrhizae in Gunnera adds another symbiont to
the Gunnera-Nostoc symbiosis.
