STUDIES ON CERTAIN ECOLOGICAL ASPECTS OF SOIL FUNGI - II

The mycoflora of twenty-one Soil samples, collected from eight districts, viz., Aligarh, Nainital, Hardoi, Unnao, Lucknow, Gorakhpur, Deoria and Jaunpaur  has been described. Apparently similar localities situated widely apart and closely situated localities with diverse characteristics have been surveyed. The fungal population was generally higher in cultivated fields. The different cultivated fields, however, exhibited remarkable variation in their fungal population. Higher population was obtained in three low lying cultivated fields which were under crop cover for short duration in the year. Nature and duration of cropping affected the population. Longer the period the field was under crop coverage higher the fungal population. Uncultivated barren localities like usar land and hillock top possessed lower Fungal Flora. The type of Fungal Species associated with different samples differed to some extent. The maximum number of fungal species i.e. 28, was obtained from cultivated field and the minimum i.e. 05 from bare mound. The members of Deuteromycetes outnumbered others followed by the members of Phycomycetes, Ascomycetes and Basidiomycetes. The Actinomycetes and mycelia sterilia were also infrequently isolated from certain localities. Physico-chemical charactes of the soil, i.e. moisture content, organic matter content and pH also affected the soil fungal flora.
