The cultivation of sugar cane has been showing undeniable importance in agriculture State of São Paulo, where the agricultural zoning describes the existence of regions with different patterns of environmental conditions suitable for this crop. In this environment, high heterogeneity and dynamics of soil results in the presence a high microbial diversity, where different microorganisms metabolisms live and work in maintaining the functionality of the soil, thus interfering with the development of plants. However, little is known about the microbial community in soils cultivated with cane sugar. Thus, this project aims to describe in a biogeographic approach, the existing diversity of fungi in soils of sugarcane sugarcane in the State of São Paulo. It is proposed to quantify these communities through the application of real-time PCR (qPCR) to examine the structure of fungal communities by length polymorphism fragments terminal restriction (T-RFLP), and determine the phylogenetic affiliation of these bodies by pyrosequencing of target genes. Within this context, sampling will be performed in order to compare the variations that occur Macro-scale, between different areas described by the agricultural zoning. Finally, the microbiological data obtained will be correlated with the physicochemical characteristics of the soils analyzed, resulting in a study biogeography of soil samples, generating a mapping of communities fungi in soils with cultivation of sugar cane in São Paulo.
