Abstract

The occurrence of yeasts in the water of two lakes located in Dhaka City over a period from September to December 1999 was investigated. The number of yeasts of lake Dhanmondi and Ramna ranged from 9.5X10⁴ to 35X10⁴ and 2.3X10⁴ to 11X10⁴CFU/l, respectively.The isolated yeast strains belonged to 5 species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Rhodotorula glutinis, Rhodotorula mucilaginosa, Debaryomyces hansenii var. fabryi and C and ida suecica. The maximum number of yeasts was found to be 3 times higher in the water samples of Dhanmondi lake than that of Ramna lake. The higher number of yeasts was correlated with the temperature of the water and with pH values.
