About this book

This new edition of the standard yeast identification and reference manual is a major revision of the second edition. Over half of the volume is devoted to descriptions of the 678 currently recognised species, presented in a clear, easy to use layout and illustrated with over 1300 high quality photomicrographs. Readily usable keys and tables allow identification of all of the species described and a wealth of reference information broadens the scope of the book beyond identification.

'! this is the single volume I would recommend for any lab doing identification work.' Alan Wheals, Microbiology Today 'This is the key book for any laboratory concerned with yeast identifications.' Mycological Research
