Arbuscular mycorrhiza (AM) is the main symbiosis in the Faroese vegetation. The fungal types found in different host plants differ, and there is also a difference of fungal types in the same plant ~pecies from place to place. Here the results from a survey of fungal types in Agrostis capillaris are compared with what other studies have found. It was expected to find a similar AM fungal flora as in a study from a grassland in Scotland, also using Agrostis capillaris as the host plant, but that was not the case. On the other hand two Faroese sites differ as much as the Faroes and the Scottish site. The Faroese AM fungal flora sampled here resembled most closely that found in an English forest.
