About this book

What makes the fungal cell unique among eukaryotes and what features are shared? This volume addresses some of the most prominent and fascinating facets of questions as they pertain to the growth and development of both yeast and hyphal forms of fungi, beginning with subcellular components - then cell organization, polarity, growth, differentiation and beyond - to the cell biology of spores, biomechanics of invasive growth, plant pathogenesis, mycorrhizal symbiosis and colonial networks. Throughout, structural, molecular and ecological aspects are integrated to form a contemporary look at the biology of the fungal cell.

Contents

- Biomechanics of Invasive Hyphal Growth
- Controls of Cell Polarity and Shape
- Signal Transduction and Morphogenesis in Candida albicans
- Ions as Regulators of Growth and Development
- Cell Biology of Fungal Infection of Plants
- Colonial Growth of Fungi
- Fungal Hydrophobins
- The Extracellular Matrix of Human Pathogenic Fungi
- Molecular Organization and Construction of the Fungal Cell Wall
- Bridging the Divide: Cytoskeleton-Plasma Membrane-Cell Wall Interactions in Growth and Development

Media reviews

From the reviews of the first edition "The volume is well illustrated and certainly realizes the primary aim of "The Mycota", namely to highlight developments in both basic and applied research into fungal systems." (Microbiology Today) "The Editors' aim 'to provide a selected sampling of contemporary topics at the forefront of fungal cell biology' has certainly been achieved. Indeed, it is hard to imagine any mycologist not finding something fascinating in each of the chapters. ... Further, the volume is packed with material that will be extremely useful for those presenting basic courses in mycology - especially because of the many fine explanatory line drawings." (Mycological Research) "The editors have done a magnificant job, and every chapter repays careful reading. ... This book will be extremely valuable to all scientists, not only mycologists sensu stricto, whose work involves experimentation with fungi. I would recommend it not only for library purchase, but also to individual scientists wanting an up-to-date overview of some of the most interesting advancing fields in fungal cell biology. It is beautifully produced in typical Springer style, and although expensive it is excellent value for money." (Mycologist)
