Out of one hundred fungi isolated from three different soil sampling areas: two garbage dumping areas in Tanauan, Batangas two grasslands in Barrio San Luis, Antipolo, Rizal and two cultivated areas in the University of the Philippines, Los Banos, Laguna, seventeen exhibited antimicrobial activity against a Gram-positive bacterium, Staphylococcus aureus. Their genera in increasing order are Curvularia, Fusarium, Cladosporium spp., Penicillium spp. and Aspergillus spp. Only four of the sixteen inhibited the growth of a Gram-negative bacterium, Pseudomonas aeruginosa. These are Aspergillus, Penicillium, and two species of Cladosporium. None of them inhibited a fungus, Candida albicans.
