Abstract:

In this study, 10 taxa of fungal spore density which have allerjenic importance in Bursa air was tried to determine with volumetric method by using Lanzoni sampler during 1999. It was found that 130344 total spores which belongs 10 taxa in 1m3 air during one year. The total fungal spores that were 114848 (88,11 %) belong to Cladosporium sp., 6498 (4,99 %) belong to Alternaria sp., 6059 (4,65 %) belong to Aspergillus sp. / Penicillium sp., 1095 (0,84 %) belong to Fusarium sp., 814 (0,62 %) belong to Epicoccum sp., 314 (0,24 %) belong to Drechslera sp., 194 (0,15 %) belong to Pithomyces sp., 186 (0,14 %) belong to Stemphylium sp., 171 (0,13 %) belong to Chaetomium sp., 165 belong to (0,13 %) Curvularia sp.. Daily, 10 days time and monthly changings of fungal spores which belongs to these taxa have been given as regards of figure and graphs. In this study, the total spore numbers of monthly variations which found in 1 m3 air have been given comparatively with meteorological factors. Addition to this, the allergen spore calender of Bursa city has been prepared by using 10 days time of total spore numbers in 1m3 air. The most number of spore have been found in June while the spores are observed in Bursa city atmosphere in each month throughout the year.
