About this book

Throughout the volume, outstanding mycologists treat the ecological role of pathogenic fungi, how they cause disease, their interactions with the immune system, and their responses to antifungal agents.

Zusammenfassend ein exzellentes Buch zu aktuellen molekularbiologischen Aspekten im Rahmen von Pilzinfektionen von Mensch und Tier. Alle Kapitel sind sorgfaltig von aktiven und weltweit ausgewiesenen Wissenschaftlern der einzelnen Fachgebiete geschrieben ... Auch ist das einheitliche Editieren dieses Bandes ausserst gelungen. Auch bei diesem Band wurde grosser Wert besonders auch auf die Primarliteratur und das sorgfaltige Erstellen ausfuhrlicher und aktueller Literaturverzeichnisse mit aktuellen Querverweisen gelegt. ... Insgesamt ein wirklich gelungenes und relevantes Werk bei immer noch moderatem Preis, was man zudem im Rahmen dieser exzellenten Gesamtbuchreihe sehen und bewerten sollte (Der Mikrobiologe)
