About this book

Since the publication of the first edition of Volume 1 in 1994, the field of fungal biology has developed tremendously, mainly through the establishment of various molecular techniques. In consequence, most chapters in the 2nd edition have been completely revised or even newly written, either by the former authors or by new scientific teams. Experts in the field compiled the latest results obtained from cytological, genetic and molecular studies. Topics include: structure and function of fungal cellls and cell organelles, growth of fungal colonies, aging, programmed cell death, incompatibility reactions, environmental and internal signals for cellular differentiation and developmental processes such as asexual and sexual reproduction, genes and gene functions in growth and development of fungi.
