Abstract

and other fungi (Basidiomycetes, Ascomycetes, Fungi Imperfecti and Phycomycetes) grew and produced transparent zones in opaque media containing killed as sole carbon and nitrogen source. Other Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria were also degraded by Degradation of by was examined by light and electron microscopy. Liquid cultures were assayed for extracellular fungal enzymes which included --acetylglucosaminidase, lipase, nucleases and acid, neutral and alkaline proteases.

Microbial biomass in compost may serve as a source of nitrogen, carbon and minerals, and as a water reserve for the growth of .
