I was recently contacted by a graduate student in soil microbiology. She is

working on Penicillium spp. she has isolated from the soil and she has
that all her cultures are contaminated with protozoa (probably amebas, she 
believes). She is looking for information on how to get rid of these little

beasts (the protozoa of course, not the fungi !). If any of you has some 
helpful hints, please contact me and I will pass the information on to the 

Thanks for your help.
