About this book

This fifth edition describes nearly 1500 species of ascomycete and basidiomycete yeasts as well as members of the yeast-like genus Prototheca. Species are recognised by gene sequence analyses and are also characterised from morphology and physiological properties. Many species are illustrated by high quality photmicrographs and line illustrations.
