The results of the first survey on the air-borne fungi in this country, made during the year 1957 in Zagreb, are here presented. The malt-agar plate-method was used, and Petri dishes were exposed for ten minutes each. A total of 4.573 spores were caught during 271 examinations. The following most prevailing fungi were found: Yeasts (28 per coot), Cladosporium (25), Penicillium (11), Fornes igniarius (6), Alternaria (5) and Aspergillus (4). Twenty-two more genera were identified. Six per cent of moulds remained unidentified, while eight per cent' of spores gave rise to Mycelia sterilia. The most frequent fungi in January and February were penicillia, in March, April and May yeasts, in the period from May to September cladosporia, while from October to December yeasts once more. The seasonal prevalence of Cladosporium and Alternaria (June-October) was noted, while Penicillium and Aspergjllus showed only minor seasonal variations. The lowest daily spore counts were observed in January (an average of 5.8 per plate), while the highest count was noted in October (35.1). Two »spore showers« were caught during our studies, one in October containing 415, the other, in December, with 352 spores, both composed mostly of yeasts. The results obtained were compared with some data from other countries and briefly discussed.
