Keratinophilic fungi from Bharatpur bird sanctuary






Indian Journal of Microbiology 35(2): 153-159

Keratinophilic fungi from Bharatpur bird sanctuary

Samples of soil, dung and feathers were collected in the Bharatpur bird sanctuary, New Delhi, India, and different source-bait combinations were used for isolation of keratinophilic fungi. The greatest numbers of keratinophilic fungi were isolated from soil. A total of 152 strs. distributed in 19 genera and 28 spp. were isolated. Chrysosporium was the dominant genus (71.05%) and the most important species isolated were C. tropicum (21.71%), C. indicum (19.73%) and C. keratinophilum (12.5%).
