Counts of mycorrhizae on roots of seedlings and large trees of Fagus grandifolia were made in ten stands in the Indiana area. Two morphological types of mycorrhizae were found; one was formed by Cenococcum graniforme (Sow) Ferd. & Winge. The identities of other symbionts are unknown. Mycorrhizae formed by Cenococcum graniforme ranged from 51 to 86 percent of the total in seedlings and from 32 to 73 percent in large trees. The percentage of root tips found to be mycorrhizal decreased with soil depth. Forest Sci. 22:127-130.
