Abstract

Studies were carried out on the ascomycetous fungi present in six different but carefully selected sites on the University of Ilorin permanent site soil. Fungi isolation was done by the soil dilution method incubated at 27oC for 72 hours. The predominant Ascomycetous check for this species in other resources fungi isolated include among others; Aspergillus niger check for this species in other resources , Fusarium solani check for this species in other resources , Fusarium oxysporum check for this species in other resources , Penicillium italicum check for this species in other resources , Fusarium acuminatum check for this species in other resources , Fusarium culmorum check for this species in other resources , Candida albicans check for this species in other resources , Botrytis cinerea check for this species in other resources , Geotrichum candidum check for this species in other resources , Trichoderma viride check for this species in other resources , Verticillium lateritum check for this species in other resources , Curvularia palescens check for this species in other resources , Penicillium griseofulvum check for this species in other resources , Penicillium janthinellum check for this species in other resources , Penicillium chrysogenum check for this species in other resources , Aspergillus terreus check for this species in other resources , Aspergillus flavus check for this species in other resources , Aspergillus fumigatus check for this species in other resources , Aspergillus glaucus check for this species in other resources , Aspergillus clavatus check for this species in other resources , Cladosporium resinae check for this species in other resources , Alternaria alternate check for this species in other resources , Trichothecium roseum check for this species in other resources , Phialophora fastigiata check for this species in other resources , Aspergillus nidulans check for this species in other resources , Aspergillus wentii check for this species in other resources , Humicola grisea check for this species in other resources , Trichophyton rubrum check for this species in other resources , Helminthosporium cynodontis check for this species in other resources , Penicillium funiculosum check for this species in other resources , Penicillium purpurogenum check for this species in other resources , Saccharomyces cerevisiae check for this species in other resources , Trichoderma harzianum check for this species in other resources , Scopulariopsis candida check for this species in other resources .The physicochemical characteristics of soil samples was found to affect the distribution and population of fungi. The colony count in the study are ranged between 5.8 x 10″ per gram of soil to 1.63 x 10″ per gram of soil. The soil consists of high organic matter content.
