Abstract

Thermotolerant fungi (26 strains in toto) were isolated from Taptapani, a local hot spring at Orissa, at a temperature of sim;45°C. The isolates grew in vitro at 28-60°C, and seven were found to have cellulolytic activity at 60°C using both Congo red and dinitrosalicylic acid reagent techniques.
