    Abstract

    The antifungal activity of 15 mediterranean algae species on some dermatophyte strains (Epidermophyton floccosum, Microsporum canis, M. gypseum and Trichophyton mentagrophytes) and pathogenic yeasts (Candida albicans, C. guillermondii, C. krusei, C. tropicalis and Torulopsis glabrata) has been tested following a modification of Aubert's technique. Among the algae species studied, Falkenbergia rufolanosa is the most active in front of all the fungi tested. © 1986 Martinus Nijhoff/Dr W. Junk Publishers.
