Abstract:
A study on air-borne fungi was made in Eilat which is situated at the extreme south of Israel in an arid area surrounded by deserts. Petri dishes containing Sabouraud's medium were exposed daily, during 1959 under standard conditions, at two sites in Eilat and for comparison at Tel-Hashomer in the central part of the country. The total number of air-borne fungi and Actinomycetes collected was markedly lower at Eilat than at Tel-Hashomer, as well as at the other places in Israel recorded previously. This fact is apparently due to the particular ecological and meteorological conditions of Eilat. The most frequently found air-borne spores were of the same genera at Eilat and Tel-Hashomer. This may be due to the northeastern and northern winds blowing from the interior parts of the country toward Eilat. Cladosporium (Hormodendrum) constituted 27 to 32 per cent of the entire catches in Eilat. Alternaria constituted 15 to 20 per cent, Penicillium 14 to 20 per cent, Aspergillus 5 to 7 per cent, Stemphylium 4 to 6 per cent, Actinomycetes 1 per cent, and yeasts 1 per cent. Among the "miscellaneous," the most frequent were Helminthosporium, Epicoccum, Fusarium, Mucor, Rhizopus, Pullularia, Monilia, and Botrytis. A seasonal variation in the number of fungal spores in the air, characterized by marked decrease during January and February, was found at the three sites of exposure. Cladosporium, Alternaria, and Stemphylium were mainly responsible for the seasonal variation. © 1962.
