Teresa Korniłłowicz-Kowalska, Justyna Bohacz

Abstract


The results of studies on the correlation between the occurrence frequency of keratinophilic fungi, including geophilic dermatophytes and chrysosporium, and soil properties are presented and discussed in the article. The fraction with 0 < 0.02 mm content and the soil pH were the most significant ecological factors that determined the frequency of occurrence and the distribution of these fungi in the soil

Keywords
