Media reviews
This text covers the full scope of fungal developmental biology and is a readable and thorough account of a kingdom rarely studied by developmental biologists. Molecular Reproduction and Development "Will be useful to all students of fungi and essential to researchers, besides being written in a style that will benefit cell biologists and microbiologists...A landmark treatise on fungi and a principal source of collected information for some time to come on all aspects of developmental biology. Extensive list of references; well illustrated throughout. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." Choice "An excellent overview as a deep insight in this matter which will surely satisfy all specialists in this field." Cellular & Molecular Biology "Moore's synthesis is a tour de force. It is rare to find a single author work that covers such a wide breadth of topics with such a pleasing combination of knowledge and eloquence...All developmental mycologists should own a desk copy of Fungal Morphogenesis and all science librarians should be alerted to order a copy for their collections."
