Aspergillus and Penicillium genus fungal spores concentration variations in atmospheric air
Summary.

The study compares fungal spores concentrations of the genera Aspergillus and Penicillium in atmospheric air in 2008-2009. The highest fungal spores concentration pertaining to the genus Penicillium was recorded in November and December 2008, and in May and December 2009. Spores belonging to the genus Aspergillus prevailed from July to September 2008, as well as in August and December of the following year. Within the genus Penicillium itself, the highest concentrations recorded concerned the species P. viridicatum – (23.0 cfu/m3, 16.6 cfu/m3), P. crustosum – 19.6 cfu/m3, P. commune – 12.7 cfu/m3 and P. expansum – 8.4 cfu/m3. Of the species belonging to Aspergillus, A. niger achieved the highest concentration during both years (115.5 cfu/m3, 132.5 cfu/m3), with A. fumigatus comprising an insignificant proportion (10.4 cfu/m3, 14.0 cfu/m3). Aspergillus and Penicillium spores occurred during the entire research period, predominating during various time intervals depending on the year in question. The concentrations of spores of individual species differed during both years and months under comparison. Fungi monitoring is advisable with regard to the genera Aspergillus and Penicillium.

Key words: spores concentration, Penicillium, Aspergillus, fungal species
