Abstract
The effects of carbaryl, methylparathion and pentachlorophenol on the microfungal succession of an estuarine microcosm were examined. Resident fungi were succeeded by Fusarium in the carbaryl-treated microcosm; by a fungus in the Penicillium chrysogenum series in the methyl parathion-treated microcosm; and by a fungus in the Penicillium canescens series in the pentachlorophenol treated microcosm. Small quantities of 14CO2 were released from the xenobiotic molecules by fungi selected from the microcosms.
