About this book

This volume covers the high relevance of fungi for agriculture. It is a completely updated and revised second edition with fourteen excellent chapters by leading scientists in their fields and offers a comprehensive review of the latest achievements and developments. Topics include: Food and fodder; fungal secondary metabolites and detoxification; biology, disease control and management; symbiontic fungi and mycorrhiza; and phytopathogenicity.

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
