Fungi in Air Questions

Question 1

Submit Answer 1

Answer 1

The fungus competes more effectively in warm and dry regions due to its capacity to germinate and establish colonies in plant tissues at lower water availability. It must be stressed that the fungus is a problem only where the spores can become airborne in huge densities and there is a significant human population to breath the spores.


Question 2

Submit Answer 2

Answer 2

The body has an effective immune response to fungi. Thus children exposed to fungi early in their life will develop an abiding resistance to subsequent contact. With the increasing suppression of the immune system, either deliberate or accidental, the defence response of the body is reduced and the chance of serious disease increased.
