Fungal Biology (4th Edition)

File Size: 6.38 Mb

Fungal Biology (4th edition) is the successor to three previous editions of “Modern Mycology.” The text has been fully updated and expanded to cover many new developments in fungal biology. Each of the 17 chapters is largely independent, with a clear theme and crossreferencing, so that the text can be used to focus on selected topics.

The early chapters deal with the unique structure and organization of fungi and fungus-like organisms, including modern experimental approaches in fungal biology, and the many ways in which fungi respond to environmental cues. These chapters also cover the diversity of fungi, and fungal products including immunosuppressants, antibiotics, and mycotoxins that contaminate food.
