Research on airborne fungi can provide basic data for air pollution control and environmental protection. Between July 2005 and June 2006, we investigated the distribution and spatial and temporal changes of airborne fungi in Hefei City, Anhui Province. The samples were collected at four different sites, including a residential district, a main traffic line, a central business district, and a green park area. Thirty-five airborne fungi genera were identified. Dominant genera included Aspergillus, Penicillium, Mucor, Rhizopus, and Trichoderma. Our results indicated that the air in Hefei was polluted with airborne fungi. In the residential district, central business district and green park area, the airborne fungi concentration increased between morning and evening, while along the main traffic line it peaked at noon. Airborne fungi concentration did not vary seasonally in the residential district or main traffic line; however, in the central business centre and green park area, fungi concentration was higher in spring and autumn than in summer and winter. Airborne fungi concentration was affected not only by air pollution, but also by human activity and vegetation distri-bution.
