Abstract

The diversity of endophytic fungi was isolated from the bark, stem and leaf of agar plant in  monsoon and winter seasons at different locations of Dhaka and Habiganj districts. A total of 25 fungal isolates were found in monsoon and 22 in winter season. The highest diversity value was found in the bark of location 2 in monsoon according to Shannon diversity index and in the stem of location 1 in winter according to Simpson diversity index. The lowest value was found in the leaf and stem of location 1 and 4, respectively. The evenness of endophytic fungi was highest in the stem of location 1 and lowest in leaf in monsoon based on Shannon evenness index. The maximum species richness was recorded in the bark of location 2 (Margalef’s index) and in the stem of location 1 in monsoon (Menhinick’s index), and the minimum value recorded in the bark of location 4 in monsoon season.
