    Article - En anglais

    A report on an examination of soils from residential garbage of Betul, India, for fungi by the keratin (materials) baiting technique is presented.

    A total of 69 fungi representing 39 species among 17 genera were isolated.

    In all the soil samples, only two genera, namely Aspergillus (190.9%), followed by Fusarium (118.18%), were most frequently isolated.

    Maximum colonisation of fungi was found on hair, followed by horn, feathers and nails.

    For the first time, the genus Fusoma is reported here as a keratinophilic fungus.

    The keratin baiting technique was found very effective in detecting a broad spectrum of fungi in biological wastes and compost.
