The Abundance and Diversity of Fungi Inhabiting Soil Samples from Mount Ciremai National
Park, West Java. A study on isolation and identification of mould inhabiting soil samples has
been conducted. The objective of the study was to isolate and identify mould inhabiting soil
samples from Mount Ciremai National Park, West Java. The mould isolation was based on
sample dillution method with Rose Bengal Cloramphenicol Agar mould isolation media. The
abundance of mould counted by measuring the average Colony Forming Unit (CFU)/ml of all
mould colonies which growth on isolation media by Total Plate Count (TPC) method. The
diversity of isolated mould was identified based on morphological character. The result showed
that the average of mould colonies between 8,5x103-11,3x104 CFU/ml. The result of mould
identification showed that nine mould generas are Aspergillus (6 species), Chaetomium (2
species), Eupenicillium, Gliocladium, Mucor, Penicillium (6 species), Rhizopus, Trichoderma
(2 species), and two groups of unidentified sterile mould.
