Mycology Vol. 1 shows representative examples of the 'Lower Fungi' (Chytridio- and Zygomycota). Also included are several intriguing groups of organisms such as slime molds, Oomycota and plasmodiophorids which are not taxonomically related to the fungi but are nonetheless widely studied by mycologists.

This interactive DVD-ROM contains about 160 film scenes illustrating the structure, development and reproduction of lower fungi and fungus-like organisms. The video clips are supplemented with stills which show organization forms as well as plant disease symptoms caused by pathogenic fungi. The film sequences include spoken narrative describing the activity on the screen. The video clips, painstakingly prepared and including many spectacular time-lapse sequences, demonstrate the timeless beauty and fascination of these organisms. The contents of Mycology Vol. 1 have been extensively rearranged following a modern taxonomic framework.

A well-structured menu facilitates easy access to all sequences and images at the click of a button. These interactive DVD-ROMs will be indispensable teaching tools at any level to any group of people interested in the exciting and mysterious world of the fungi.
