Description: The mining activity in Mato Grosso is an economic source for many cities, especially in Poconé, where this activity is responsible for significant change in the landscape and the contamination of the ecosystem by mercury. This results in serious damage to biota enhanced by bioaccumulation capacity. Mercury is toxic to all organisms, however, some microorganisms have innate or acquired tolerance to metal. Therefore, our hypothesis is based on the premise that plants in contaminated environments with mercury harbor a specific community of endophytic fungi, therefore, variations in the colonization frequency of the endophytes in these plants are expected, when compared to places without contamination.
