About this book

This outstanding book is an essential tool in helping the scientific community to identify smut fungi everywhere. It includes keys to the genera and species and a host plant-smut fungus list and compiles more than 3,500 micrographs and line drawings into a single sourcebook.

This nearly 1500-page treatise is authored by the worldwide authority on the subject, Dr. Kalman Vanky, who has spent more than 50 years collecting and describing smut fungi species. The book provides complete and detailed presentations of species in 93 genera through descriptions and illustrations. The book updates our knowledge of valid scientific names and synonyms and provides taxonomic references and the host plant range of each species. Dr. Vanky's passion for the topic shines through on every page through the excellent illustrations and detailed descriptions which complement each other to make identification easier. Having all content in a single volume allows the reader to flip back and forth between similar looking fungi for detailed comparison and analysis.

This is a must-have resource for diagnosticians working in agricultural and food labs. Mycologists, plant pathologists, molecular biologists, teachers and students, as well as amateurs will appreciate its clear, concise, and comprehensive descriptions.

Flora / Fauna Identification Key

1458 pages, 2800 b/w photos, 650 b/w line drawings
Media reviews

" [...] a major service to mycologists and plant pathologists worldwide, and at the same time a tremendous and extraordinary personal achievement [...] a landmark publication, destined to be the major reference work on smut fungi for decades to come, and a must-have for all key mycological and plant pathological libraries."
- Journal of the International Mycological Association

"Wow! I had the opportunity to review the page proofs for this book, and the images are amazing. The details in the scanning electron micrographs are exceptional. The images make this book unique."
- Anthony P. Keinath, APS Publications Board Chair

"A keenly-awaited world monograph of the smut fungi is at last in the hands of the specialists interested in this remarkable group of fungi [...] invaluable not only to all mycologists, but also to plant pathologists, molecular biologists, and students interested in this group of parasitic fungi. There is no doubt that Smut Fungi of the World will soon become established as the seminal reference work for specialists interested in the smut fungi. Over the forthcoming decades it will be the primary citation in the reference lists of publications concerning these fungi. Kálmán Vánky is richly deserving of our plaudits and appreciation for delivering such a momentous work."
- Mycologia Balcanica
