ABSTRACT

 

Air sampling was done at nine different locations in indoor as well as outdoor environments of Ujjain city of India for studying the diversity of airborne fungi. During the study 23 types of fungi belonging to six different genera were identified. Based on this data a basic, image analysis software for quick and easy identification of important airborne fungi has been developed. The software may prove useful in further aeromycological studies and area monitoring in hospitals and industries. Further, it can also be used as an educational tool (Eduware) for teaching fungi and research in the area of mycology.
