Chapter 3.2.5 : Airborne Fungi and Mycotoxins

MyBook is a cheap paperback edition of the original book and will be sold at uniform, low price.

Abstract:

This chapter reviews literature on airborne fungi, with emphasis on indoor fungal growth, infestation and contamination, factors affecting airborne fungal spore populations, indoor sources of fungi, and fungal spore discharge mechanisms. It also covers the health effects of fungi and their metabolites (mycotoxins and fungal volatile organic compounds). The diseases associated with indoor fungal exposure, such as infections, allergy, respiratory diseases, hypersensitivity and toxic pneumonitis, mycotoxicoses and mucous membrane/olfactory irritations are discussed.
