About this book

Keep this easy-to-use set of mycology reference cards nearby as a helpful study aid and diagnostic tool.

Mycology Guide: Key Terms and Concepts presents updated illustrated classifications of the major fungi phyla covered in introductory mycology courses along with a list of key features of fungi and related groups. Each classification provides an overall hierarchical structure of the phylum to the order and sometimes to the family level, facilitating a top-down visual approach to learning. Each order features an illustration, a list of representative genera and a list of key characteristics in the areas of ecology, structure, morphology, reproduction, life cycle, genetics, cell ultrastructure, pathology, and biochemistry.

This greatly expanded and updated second edition now includes both a fungal phylogeny wheel and a phylogenetic tree to help users read and interpret ancestor-descendant evolutionary relationships between and among groups highlighted in Mycology Guide: Key Terms and Concepts. Four times the length of the first edition, these durable cards come laminated and three-hole punched for convenience with definitions of hundreds of mycology terms and illustrations of key structures. The new edition now includes references and a helpful index.

"A reference for school teachers, students, undergraduates, graduates and anyone with an interest in mycology. So it should be available in schools and university libraries."
