Aerobiological studies are very important as they provide with qualitative and quantitative information about airborne fungi in a given region .Fungi are diverse group of organisms and are found in large number and amount in the indoor and outdoor environment. The study deals with the survey of the fungal diversity at the Railway station of Bilaspur (C.G.). The present study has been done for analysing the aeromycoflora of winter season, from November 2015 to February 2016. The culture plate method has been adopted for trapping the mycoflora. After sampling slides were mounted with glycerine and observed under microscope. In this study 44 fungal species and 31 fungal genera were obtained in which Aspergillus, Penicillium, Rhizopus, Cladosporium, Alternaria and Fusarium was most dominant. Environmental factors plays important role for the dispersal of the fungal spores. The main aim of the aerobiological survey is the biotic particles present in the atmosphere especially fungal spores.
