The study of microfungal flora of air in Gheshm iseland the largest Iseland in Khalige Fars

Abstract: 

The fungal spores of air in Gheshm iseland were isolate and identified by air traping technique and traditional plate culture. The isolates were identified whith macroscopy and microscopical morphotyping. A total of 615 colony were identified. 80% of fungal spores identified belongs to Dematiaceous fungi and others known as Hyalinehyphomycetes. The frequency of fungal spores isolate were as follows: Alternaria sp. 70.93%, Penicillium sp.8.45%, Cladosporium sp.6.9%, Aspergillus sp 3.43%, Drechslera sp. 1.2% and others which consists of : Fusarium sp., Helminthosporium sp., Ulocladium sp., Stemphilium sp. This research showed a significant diferrence in Dimatiaceous fungal spore distribiution in warm climate such as Gheshm iseland with colder climates such as Hamedan and Isfahan and Tehran.
