Özet

In this research, spore concentrations of Cladosporium, Alternaria, Epicoccum, Botrytis, Leptosphaeria, Polythrincium, ascospores, Aspergillus, Penicillium, basidiospores, uredospores, Ustilago, Torula, Erysiphe, Ganoderma, Hyaline indeterminate and others in the atmosphere have been determined, and comparisons have been made between locations with both low and high spore concentrations. The importance of these air-borne fungal spores which cause allergy and asthma are emphasized in the paper from the viewpoint of human health.
