An aeromycological study to identify and quantify allergenic fungi and their fluctuations was conducted at Bhilai city. The diversity of the aeromycoflora at different height in this study, based on the recovery of fungal propagules by the air-exposing-PDA plating method was conducted in rainy season. The study showed that the most prevalent (major components) fungal spores in the air on different heights (0-10feet,10-20and 20-40feets) in kohka- Bhilai city were Aspergillus spp. Alternaria spp. Curvularia spp. Rhizopus spp. Penecillin spp. fusarium spp. The abundant genera on different heights were Curvularia, Aspergillus, Alternaria. Curvularia spp. Aspergillus spp. were the most abundant fungal spore type collected throughout the period of study on different height in kohka-bhilai city.
Aeromycoflora, Allergenic fungi, Aspergillus , Alternaria, Curvularia.
