Abstract
A total of 20 soil samples were collected from ten poultry farms and ten from hair-dumping/garbage sites from different areas of Jabalpur city and were examined for the presence of dermatophytes and related keratinophilic fungi. Twenty (100%) out of 20 soil samples examined were positive for dermophytic fungi. Results showed that numbers of fungi were more in poultary farms, while the number of species isolated from hair dumping sites were less in number. Twenty three species belonging to various genera were identified from various samples of poultary farms and hair dumping sites.
