    Abstract

    The fungi are heterogenous organisms grouped together on the basis of structure, biochemistry, and physiology. They are classified primarily by mode of sexual reproduction, and are aerobic decay organisms. They cause human hypersensitivity, infectious, and toxic diseases. Environmental assessment can involve looking for obvious growth, or sampling either reservoirs or air. Interpretation of sampling data requires correlation with the nature and distribution of complaints.

    Keywords:

    fungi, spores, hypersensitivity, opportunistic pathogens, air sampling, reservoir sampling
