The first account of the developmental biology of fungi considers whether evidence exists for the action of pattern forming mechanisms in the development of fungal structures, similar to those which operate in animal and plant systems. |Aimed at developmental biologists as well as mycologists, this volume presents the current status of this nascent field.
' ! a good accessible book for advanced undergraduates and their seniors, which sets out an area of great opportunity in modern microbiology.' Chris Thurston, Biologist ' ! some very readable chapters on diverse topics in fungal development that have not been extensively reviewed elsewhere ... the book is a useful addition to the compact bookshelf of the mycologist specializing in physiology and development.' Nicholas P. Money, Bioscience 'This book fills a need both for advanced students of mycology and for workers in the field of fungal morphogenesis. It is well produced with good illustrations and should be in every responsible botanical library.' N. Robertson, Annals of Botany
