Review of the first edition:

"This volume of the series Mycota [...] covers many of the aspects where fungi are of relevance to agriculture. [...] There is much of interest to most mycologists in this volume [...] . the topics covered are dealt with by experts in their field and represent benchmark accounts of the current state of knowledge, which those involved with the research on these subjects may consider worth the price."
– J. M. Waller, Bibliography of Systematic Mycology, April, 2003
