Title : Identification of the fungi isolated to identify the effect of essential oils on fungal growth

Abstract:

- Identification of the fungi isolated from selected tomb: Through Petri dishes, it is possible to identify the shape and type of mushrooms in terms of morphological characteristics and to know the rate of presence of each fungus by making microscopic slides for all samples of the fungi that were made.  In the dishes, slides were made as follows: A - Glass slides were prepared and a tool was prepared to capture the mushroom sample, and the dishes were opened in the presence of a flame for sterilization, with the tweezers sterilized well with flame also before sampling, then the sample was taken and placed on the slide after placing a drop of Canada Balsam, which is a material for preservation  The mushroom sample, after taking the sample and placing it on the Canada with balm in the slide, was covered with the slide cover and gently pressed to empty the air bubbles from the slide whenever possible and placed under the optical microscope to identify the mushrooms.

Experimental Study to identify the effect of essential oils on fungal growth: In this study, the main goal was to use oils first because of their less harmful nature on the effect, and secondly to examine the extent of the effect of the selected oils on inhibiting and decaying fungi.  Which was isolated in the Petri dishes under experience, and the use of oils is considered aesthetically acceptable with respect to the effect as it does not affect its shape or nature, in addition to it is safe to use and to know the extent of the effect of the selected oils in inhibiting the fungal growth. Fungi were isolated under trial in different environments in the Petri dishes.  And choosing three different oils to be used in influencing the fungal growth at different concentrations to know the behavior and activity of fungal growth in the presence of these oils.
