Tropical mycology is attracting increasing interest, as the key role of fungi in tropical ecosystems and as pathogens becomes appreciated. This book is the second of two complementary volumes (Volume 1 covers Macromycetes) produced from papers given at the British Mycological Society's symposium held in Liverpool in April 2000. It describes the ecology, biology, economic dimensions and systematics of tropical Macromycetes. Written by experts in their field, the papers have been thoroughly edited and revised.
Reasons for and protocols of study of tropical fungi; biocontrol and chemistry; insect andhuman fungal interactions; ecological groupings; plant pathological studies. (Part contents).
