Contribution of leaf surface fungi to the air spora

  title={Contribution of leaf surface fungi to the air spora},
  author={Estelle Levetin and Kip Dorsey},
High concentrations of airborne fungal spores frequently occur from spring through fall in temperate areas of the world. Although it is generally assumed that fungi on leaf surfaces are contributors to the air spora, little data are available comparing the types of fungi found on leaf surfaces with those in the atmosphere. Air sampling was carried out with a Burkard Spore Trap located on the roof of a building on the University of Tulsa campus using standard methods. Leaf samples were… CONTINUE READING
