This work deals with a study of the changes observed throughout the four seasons of the year concerning the number of fungi which can be found in the atmosphere of Barcelona. The results obtained will bring us to the conclusion that during the autumn and winter months the number of conidia per m3 is greater than in spring and summer. This observation would confirm the fact that generally speaking in autumn and winter, temperature decreases and humidity increases, while the opposite occurs in spring and summer. These phenomena would be directly related to our findings where we have established that an increase in temperature implies a reduction on the airborne fungi, while the remaining climatic factors taken into account would indicate an increase in the total fungal population. The same relation - phenomena were observed for the strains of the genus Cladosporium, Penicillium, Aureobasidium, Aspergillus and Alternaria, though with some modifications in the three later.
