Research theme: Fungal destructive action and its dependence on environmental factors

Short annotation (the aim, objectives)

Microscopic fungi is a unique group of microorganisms because of their ability to deteriorate natural and synthetic polymeric materials. The potency to develop on polymeric materials is important from an ecological point of view and it depends on ecological and biological properties of microorganisms, chemical composition of substrate and environmental factors. The aim of this study is to investigate biodegradability of natural and synthetic polymeric materials under different environmental conditions. In order to implement it, these tasks are established: selection and identification of active fungal strains, evaluation of the impact of environmental factors and introduced microscopic fungi on biodegradability of natural and synthetic polymeric materials and selection of favorable biodegradability  conditions.
