    The aim of this study was to evaluate the occupational exposure of workers employed in the paper sorting plant to airborne fungi in four seasons. Surface Air System method was used for the sampling of airborne fungi. Airborne fungi samples were collected in the workers' breathing zone twice per work shift (10a.m. and 2p.m.) and twice per each season. Overall, high concentrations of airborne fungi in the work environment were detected. Higher numbers of CFU (colony forming units) of airborne fungi per cubic meter were measured at 2p.m. than at 10a.m. during each work shift. The highest concentration of CFU of airborne fungi were measured in the summer (1.00 - 3.88 x10(4) CFU/m(3)), and then in the spring (0.49 - 1.15 x10(4) CFU/m(3)). The lowest numbers of CFU of airborne fungi were measured in autumn (0.26 - 0.50 x10(4) CFU/m(3)). In comparison to other studies, paper sorting plant represents working environment with increased concentrations of airborne fungi.
