Abstract

A total of 36 fungal species were isolated during the study. The soil mycoflora was cultured using serial dilution and plate count method on PDA and Malt Extract Agar supplemented with streptomycin. The fungal density was recorded maximum during summers followed by spring and winter.

In summers the fungal density was recorded highest in descending order: Mixed wood forest of pine and oak (12.4×104cfu g-1), land put to non-agriculture use (11.8×10cfu g-1), Silvo-pasture (8.2×104cfu g-1), agricultural field (8.0×104cfu g-1), floating garden (7.8×104cfu g-1). In spring the density remained more or less same in sites 1, 3, 6 and 7. In winters sampling could only be carried out in only three sites, density in these sites decreased appreciably due to drop in temperature.
