Abstract

Ten species of fungi were obtained from poultry droppings in Nigeria. Six of these are true thermophiles while the other four are thermotolerant. Fresenius, Lindt and Stolk are known human pathogens. Except for all the thermotolerant species had a higher occurrence at 45°C while the thermophilic varieties were readily obtained at 50°C.
