ABSTRACT

 

The distribution of thermophilic actinomycetes in the atmosphere of Kuwait was studied during the year 1979. The concentration of these organisms per cubic metre was higher in the crowded commercial district than in the quieter residential one. Maximum counts were obtained during September, especially on nutrient agar-sea water medium. Higher counts were also recorded during April.Five genera of thermophilic actinomycetes were recorded in the atmosphere of Kuwait: Thermoactinomyces, Thermomonospora, Pseudonocardia, Streptomyces and Actinobifida. Thermoactinomyces vulgaris was dominant, being followed by Thermomonospora viridis. The Streptornyces isolates were characterised and classified into seven groups according to their morphology and carbon utilization pattern. Twelve Streptornyces isolates could be identified as S. diastaticus (7 strains), S. galbus (4 strains) and S. griseoruber (1 strain).
