NARAYAN HOSA MAN! AND G.M. VIDYASAGAR

Abstract

Investigations were conducted to asses the ecological factors governing distribution of keratinophilic fungi in cultivated and non-cultivated soils of Bidar district in Karnataka, India. Samples were collected from different places of Bidar district. A total of 28 fungal species belonging to 20 genera were isolated from both cultivated and non-cultivated soils. Of these, 25 fungal species were isolated from cultivated soils, 23 fungal species from non-cultivated soil samples. Among the isolates, Mucor racemosus, Curvulari a lunata, Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus, Cunnighamella echinulata, chrysoporim tropicum, Malbrachea flava, Alternaria alteniata, vcrticillium alboatrium and frichophylon mentagrophytes were recovered from both cultivated and non-cultivated soils. These soils were nearly neutral to weakly alkaline with high content of organic carbon, sulphate, nitrate calcium and magnesium.
