About this book

Language: English

Mycotoxins, toxic metabolites of moulds elaborated during their colonization of foods and feeds, pose a threat to human and animal life. Moulds are the diverse group of fungi, which grow in comparatively dry and warm environments, produce copious amount of spores and promote the elaboration of these mycotoxins. Mycotoxigenic fungi, which are unique with regards to their sporulating apparatus and exhibit wide variation in their morphology, poses a challenge in their identification. There are numerous examples of their misidentification leading to wrong conclusions. This book gives a taxonomic revision of mycotoxigenic fungi.
