MyBook is a cheap paperback edition of the original book and will be sold at uniform, low price.

Incorporating the latest findings from such disciplines as physiology, taxonomy, genomics, molecular biology and cell biology, this publication is an ideal starting point for any research study of filamentous fungi. Its extensive use of illustrations and tables also makes it an excellent textbook for both graduate and undergraduate students, helping them easily grasp and apply new concepts.

begins with an historical perspective, cell morphology and taxonomy, and then moves on to such topics as cell growth, development, metabolism, and pathogenesis. The book covers model organisms in detail as well as a broad variety of dimorphic and “obligate” filamentous fungal species. You’ll learn how individual species have adapted themselves to highly diverse ecological niches. In addition, comparisons to studies of the yeasts Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Schizosaccharomycespombe help you better understand the nature of fungi and the underlying evolution that leads to diversity in this fascinating kingdom.

Each chapter has been written by one or more leading experts. These authors, representing a “Who’s Who” in the field of fungal biology, offer you the latest genomic-based approaches alongside a careful evaluation of the current literature. Presenting the full range of the fungal kingdom and covering such important topics as saprophytes, pathogens and endophytes, this publication captures our current understanding of fungal biology, all in one volume.
