FUNGAL BIOPOLLUTANTS AND THE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS OF SARAIPALI, DIST. MAHASAMUND CHHATTISGARH, INDIA
An exploration of airborne microbes was done using Rotorod air sampler. Altogether 27 fungal species belonging to 32 genera were isolated from study sites during different sampling periods. Among the various species encountered, Rhizopus and Aspergillus were the principal fungi with a contribution of (23%) followed by Mucor( 10%) and Alternaria (8.5%) respectively. The study indicates that the incidence of air borne fungal spores of clinical significance show greater variation in response to the environmental conditions. The present study indicates a co-relationship between incidence of fungal biopollutants and the environmental conditions.
