This research was focused on determining  the relationship between arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi diversity and soil physical -chemicals properties, in gooseberry plantations in Andean Mountains from 1500 to 2700 m.o.s.l. The spore abundance, spore morphotype and diversity index were determined and analyzed through multiple regression It was possible determine that some soil conditions affect the abundance and diversity of AMF.
