First book of its type since 1957.
In this timely monograph Elliott brings a lifelong interest in fungi and their fascinating reproductive strategies to fruition with a comprehensive account of experiments and observations made over more than one hundred years...On the whole, Elliott does not seek to reinterpret others' conclusions, but rather brings their experiments together in what he sees as an appropriate juxtaposition...Reproduction in Fungi, Genetical and Physiological Aspects is a reference work that those who know the field will enjoy. The descriptions are meticulous, but at the end of each chapter is a welcome concise summary. We hope that this book will open new eyes to the potential of fungi in studying development Trends in Genetics; ...very useful, and I warmly recommend it, not only to mycologists, but to all other biologists interested in research on reproduction. - Acta Botanica; Reproduction in Fungi is a worthwhile contribution that many biologists are likely to enjoy. It summarizes extensive literature on reproduction in the fungi, connecting these studies to phenomena and processes widely recognized among other organisms and providing insights not evident from other studies. - BioScience
