Comment
Exceptional among microorganisms in being both a primary and opportunistic pathogen as well as a major allergen.
Its conidia production is prolific, and so human respiratory tract exposure is almost constant.
Thermotolerance is a trait critical to its ability to thrive in mammalian and avian infections and in the even-higher temperature ranges characteristic of composts (that is, up to 70 degree).
Isolated from a patient who ultimately died from invasive aspergillosis.
