In this study, we summarized previous studies on diversity and distribution of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) for last 30 years in Korea. According to a review of the literature concerning AMF in Korea, 14 genera and 89 species have been recorded. Host plants for AMF are very diverse and include crop species and woody plants in natural forests. Based on the achievements of the last 30 years of study on AMF, we anticipate that relatively more intensive studies of the functional and genetic diversity of AMF will be conducted.
