About this book

A comprehensive manual that gives beginners the skills to identify fungi. In addition to plant pathogenic fungi, the manual covers mushrooms, slime molds, fungi of clinical significance, indoor air fungi, and other aspects of mycology.
This manual covers all groups of fungi and fungus-like organisms and includes over 500 diagrams and line drawings. Descriptions of major groups (phylogenetic and artificial), simplified keys to family, and an illustrated glossary enable placement of common fungi into the appropriate taxonomic category. Text and glossary are coordinated to introduce fundamentals of mycological terminology. Over 30 pages of references are provided for literature on identification of cultures and specimens, and references are also given for contemporary phylogenetic research on each major taxonomic group.
