Studies on certain ecological aspects of soil fungi

Eight localities of village Bhatauli of Unnao district, Uttar Pradesh (India) have been analysed for their soil mycoflora. 52 fungal forms belonging to 29 genera with two members of mycelia sterilia were isolated. Eight species (confined to 7 genera)of Phycomycetes, 3 spp. (2 genera including one Ascogenous species of Aspergillus) from Ascomycetes, 39 spp. belonging to 20 genera of Deuteromycetes and two mycelia sterilia (white and black one each)comprise the total population. Genus Aspergillus alone represents 13 species, viz., A. nidulans, A. fumigatus, A. sydowi, A. flavus, A. terreus, A. terreus var. Africanus, A. flavipes, A. niger, A. aculeatus, A. ochraceus, A. tamarii, A. carncus and A. gorakhpurensis and shows wide distribution in all the localities. On the other hand, few species like Botryodiplodia sp., Fusidium viride, Helicostylum piriforme, Humicola fuscoatra, Penicillium expansum, Pythiopsis sp., Stachybotrys atra, Scopulariopsis sp., Stysanus stemonites and white sterile form were confined to only limited localities. Relationship of various other factors viz., organic matter, moisture content and pH of the soil with fungal population has also been studied. (Full paper at Slideshare.net))
