Occurrence, distribution and seasonal periodicity of some aquatic fungi of Sat-Tal (Nainital), India

Abstract

The occurrence of 23 species of aquatic fungi belonging to Blastocladiales, Saprolegniales, Lagenidiales and Peronosporales in three lakes and their surrounding cultivated and non-cultivated soils of Sat-Tal area have been studied. The species were found to be different in their habitat and temperature range.
