About this book

The aim of Advanced Microscopy in Mycology is to describe the latest advances in microscopic methods, including integrated techniques, as applied to mycology. Each chapter will provide a brief overview of a particular microscopic method with associated advantages and limitations, the research questions that can be appropriately addressed using these microscopic methods, how it has been successfully applied to address mycological research questions, including supporting and complimentary techniques, and which future questions can be addressed.
