About this book

This new edition of the universally acclaimed and widely-used textbook on fungal biology has been completely re-written, drawing directly on the authors' research and teaching experience. The text takes account of the rapid and exciting progress that has been made in the taxonomy, cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, pathology and ecology of the fungi. Features of taxonomic relevance are integrated with natural functions, including their relevance to human affairs. Special emphasis is placed on the biology and control of human and plant pathogens, providing a vital link between fundamental and applied mycology.

Introduction to Fungi is richly illustrated throughout with specially prepared drawings and photographs, based on living material. Illustrated life-cycles are provided, and technical terms are clearly explained. Extensive reference is made to recent literature and developments, and the emphasis throughout is on whole-organism biology from an integrated, multidisciplinary perspective.

"[...] highly recommended."
- Mycological Research

"The drawings of this book are accurate and aesthetically pleasing. [...] The authors have taken greatest care in production of this work; legends to figured and tables, spelling of names, references are flawless. [...] The authors succeed in conveying much of their fascination to their readers. I can only wish this book, written by an eminent teacher of mycology, a very wide distribution."
