Abstract: Soil microscopic fungi have great economic importance, as the metabolic activity of many of them is an auxiliary factor in soil fertility, On the other hand, some of them may cause damage for plants such as vegetables and fruit trees. Various species of soil fungi are plant pathogenic, and some of them can produce toxins that transfer through the food chain to herbivores and man. The most important feature of some of these fungi is their ability to produce antibiotics, enzymes, and other organic compounds that are important to humans. In this research paper, nine genera of fungi (Phyllactinia, Fusarium, Penicillium, Alternaria, Mucor, Aspergillus, Chaetomium, Phytophthora, and Rhizoctonia) were isolated and identified from nine regions in Ghemins, which located on the eastern coast of Libya, in the south of Benghazi.
