About this book

Forest Fungi: Biodiversity, Conservation, Mycoforestry and Biotechnology explores sustainable option aspects of forest fungal research, from the selection of hosting plants, isolation, identification, fermentation, identification of secondary metabolites, omics-tools for better understanding the plant-fungus Interactions. Forests are the world's greatest repository of terrestrial biomass, soil carbon and biodiversity. They provide a variety of provisioning, supporting, regulatory and cultural ecosystem services, which are crucial for the survival of human beings. Fungi play key roles in forest ecosystems as mutualists, saprobes and pathogens.

Biography

Professor Ahmed M. Abdel Azeem PhD is currently working as a Professor at the Department of Botany and Microbiology, Faculty of Science, Suez Canal University, Ismailia 41522, Egypt. He completed his PhD degree from Suez Canal University, Ismailia, Egypt. Prof. Abdel-Azeem is a mycologist with particular interest in the ecology, taxonomy, biology, and conservation of fungi, especially on the members of the phylum Ascomycota. His research includes isolation, identification, and taxonomic assessments of these fungi with particular emphasis on those which produce bioactive materials from different ecological habitats, especially endophytes. He is the editor-in-chief of Microbial Biosystems Journal (MBJ) and a reviewer of more than seven international journals. He has published more than 70 research papers in journals, 27 book chapters in books published by international publishers, and 5 books.

Dr Marieka Gryzenhout PhD is passionate about studying fungi (mycology). Her mycology career started when she developed a world monograph of the important tree pathogen fungal family Cryphonectriaceae. Her research instilled in her a hunger to discover fungal species, describe them and untangle taxonomic problems using a practical approach and making the knowledge available to diverse end-users who do not necessarily have the appropriate skills and background. Her current position as a biosystematist in the Department of Genetics at the University of the Free State is conducive to following her research ideals. Currently, she published 85 international peer-reviewed articles, three books (one has been revised and released again) and four book chapters.

Dr Soumya Ghosh is presently a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Genetics, University of the Free State, South Africa since September 2019. Following his completion of his PhD from Stellenbosch University, South Africa (2011-2015) he pursued his first postdoctoral studies at the Department of Biology, Thompson Rivers, University, BC, Canada (2016 -2017). After returning from Canada he joined as a visiting faculty of Microbiology at Kuchaman College, Rajasthan, India. Prior to his PhD, Dr Ghosh worked as a Research Fellow position at the Department of Chronobiology, Biological Center, University of Groningen, The Netherlands (2005). From 2005 to 2008, he worked as a Research Fellow at the Department of Developmental Biology, Centre of Plant Molecular Biology (ZMBP), Tubingen University, Germany where he secured his Biologie-Diplomarbeit (2005-2006). Thereafter, he continued with the same position at the Department of Systems Biology, Technical University Munich, Germany from 2008 to 2010. Dr Ghosh completed his Bachelor's degree in Microbiology from Garware College, Pune, India in 1999 and subsequently his Master's degree in Zoology at Pune University in 2001. Dr Ghosh is working on diverse fields ranging from plant biology to microbial diversity that will potentially lead to the discovery of novel drug molecules. He has published 72 articles in peer-reviewed journals such as Plant Cell, Biochemical Pharmacology, Diversity, Antibiotics, Microorganisms, Journal of Fungi, Current Microbiology, 3 Biotech, Frontiers in Microbiology, Scientific Reports, Applied Surface Science, Colloids and Surface A, Polyhedron, Journal of Molecular Liquids, Reviews in Medical Virology, Environmental Science and Pollution Research, 5 book chapters and currently editing and co-editing, books in Springer and Elsevier, respectively.

Dr Teroj A. Mohammed PhD is currently working as a microbiologist at the Basic Science Department, College of Dentistry, University of Duhok and she is a Ph.D. candidate for medical microbiology. Teroj's research includes isolation, identification, and taxonomic analysis of Microbiological organisms, emphasizing those that are Zoonotic and have an impact on human health, as well as a special interest in fungi that produce biologically active compounds. Her most recent attraction is for fungus conservation and biodiversity. She is a member of the American Society for Microbiology, the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) Collaborator Network, and the Iraqi Mycologists Network. She has published more than 13 research papers in journals.
