Abstract

A survey on airborne thermophilous fungi at a farmhouse in Chennai, India was made using an Andersen 2-stage viable sampler for the period from January 1997 to December 1997 at fortnight intervals. A total of 582 colonies belonging to 17 species were recorded. The species Emericella nidulans was dominant with an average of 60.2 CFU/m³ of air followed by Aspergillus fumigatus and Thermomyces lanuginosus with 34.7 CFU/m³ of air and 32.2 CFU/m³ of air, respectively. The total respirable fraction recorded was 58.4 %.
