About this book

The primary aim of this book is to provide a morphologically-based system for the identification of the more common Aspergillus species. Several uncommon species are also included in order to demonstrate the breadth of variability in the genus. To write the species descriptions herein, new information was obtained by recording morphological observations on approximately five isolates of each species. These data were then combined with previously published information to create a comprehensive species description. The key was then written based on the new species descriptions.
