Abstract

Microscopic examination of horse caecum contents revealed vegetative growth of phycomycete fungi on particles of digesta, and uniflagellated cells similar to fungal zoospores in the liquid phase. Three morphologically distinct isolates of strictly anaerobic phycomycete fungi were obtained from the caecum contents and cultured . Two of the isolates were able to utilize a wide range of plant carbohydrates for growth, including α-cellulose, xylan and particulate starch, and extensively digested water-insoluble plant tissues.
