Abstract/Summary

The microfungi in the topsoil and litter layer of Mt. Palay-Palay National Park, Maragondon, Cavite were collected in July 6, 1996. They were identified and screened for their antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli. A total of 29 spcies in 5 genera were isolated from the dilution method. The most prevalent genera in decreasing order were Fusarium, Aspergillus, Penicillium, Curvularia, and Acremonium. Aspergillus terreus inhibited the growth of Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli. Fusarium sp.4, however, was only able to inhibit Staphyloccus aureus.
