Twenty two naturally occurring monoterpenoid compounds were selected for antifungal evaluation against two of the most common postharvest pathogens on temperate fruits, Botytts cinema and Montltnh fmcticola. Experiments were carried out in order to examine the separate effects of these compounds on spore germination and mycelial growth. The growth inhibition test was conducted by incorporating the compounds into the medium, or by exposing the fungi to the vapor
