Various health problems including symptoms and diseases are known to be associated with microbially contaminated air and can arise through inhalation of airborne fungal spores. The relationship between the viable air floating fungal contamination and the respirable particulate matter with aerodynamic diameter less than 10 μm (PM10) in the ambient air was studied. Samples were collected at each sampling period (10 sites in total) at residential, commercial cum traffic and Industrial sites in the city of Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) during April, 2010 to June, 2011. The respirable dust sampler (Environtech Model APM 460 NL) was used for the collection. 6 groups of fungi of environmental origin were detected on PM10.The concentration of airborne fungi was increased with increasing mass concentration of PM10.
