About this book

This fifth edition describes nearly 1500 species of ascomycete and basidiomycete yeasts as well as members of the yeast-like genus Prototheca. Species are recognised by gene sequence analyses and are also characterised from morphology and physiological properties. Many species are illustrated by high quality photmicrographs and line illustrations.

...This volume is an essential reference to any serious student of yeasts and yeast-like fungi. Moreover, the thick volume with information for isolation, growth, and identification makes yeasts accessible to virtually anyone, including beginners who have little experience with them.
