Dr. BoÅ¼ena Kiziewicz's area of expetise is environmental microbiology of part about micromycetes: fungi which occur in different habitats: water, soil and air and pollution. Especially she is interested in water microbiology, generally, group of organisms such as yeast and water molds. She examined the influence of fungi on human heath especially, allergy. Fungi constitute a large and diverse group of organisms widely in nature. Until now, the major problems investigated in the field of mycology included new fungus species, fungal taxonomy and developmental cycles. Much less attention has been devoted to ecological problems related to this group of organisms or to the effect of the respective environmental physical and chemical factors on the morphology, growth and species composition of fungi. The analysis of species composition based on the morphological and molecular properties of fungi in relation to the environmental factors (physical and chemical factors such as temperature, oxidability, carbon, dioxide, reaction, general alkalinity, sulphates, various nitrogen forms, phosphates, total iron, chlorides, calcium, magnesium, dry residue, soluble substances, suspension and pesticides) that occur in the water bodies used for consumption and recreation will allow estimation of the effect fungi exert on the quality of life.
