Abstract : Petroleum hydrocarbons (PHs) are a large group of chemicals. They represent a major concern because of their widespread spread in the environment, their potential to bioaccumulate, their harmful effects and their resistance to biodegradation. In the current picture of the world, major environmental pollution in soil and water is attributed to the pollution of hydrocarbons from oil refineries, petrochemical industries, human activities and so on. A better understanding of the mechanisms and factors that affect biodegradation is of great environmental importance because the choice of bioremediation technic depends on it. Whereas many reviews have focused on metabolic and ecological aspects of PHs degradation, this review exhibited the fungi PHs-degradation with special emphasis on both physicochemical and biological factors influencing the biodegradation.
Keywords : petroleum hydrocarbons; biotic and abiotic factors; biodegradation and bioremediation Fungi
