Synopsis: Fungi have their own unique cell biology and life cycle, but also play critical roles in wider biological systems. This textbook provides a comprehensive view of fungal biology, ranging in scope from the evolutionary origins of fungi and other eukaryotes more than a billion years ago, to the impact fungi have on everyday life. Bringing mycology teaching right up to date, this unique systems biology approach emphasises the interactions between fungi and other organisms to illustrate the critical roles that fungi play in every ecosystem and food web. With more than 60 colour figures, examples of computational modelling and resource boxes directing students to areas of interest online, this book gives students an appreciation of fungi both at the organism level and in the context of wider biology. A companion CD accompanying the print book features a hyperlinked version of the book and the fully integrated World of Cyberfungi website.

Review: 'Mycology is often seen as a relatively small specialist discipline; however, this expansive treatment of the subject reaches the parts that other textbooks fail to reach, even putting fungi in the context of the cosmos! This interactive textbook will make a valuable contribution to modernising fungal science education, providing a platform for 21st century mycology teaching in universities and colleges.' Dr Alison M. Ashby, British Mycological Society and University of Cambridge

'The 21st Century Guidebook to Fungi is a game changer. It will provide the current techno savvy generation of students with a format that matches their learning style. The information is extensive and accessibly presented and the links provide students with tools to improve their critical thinking and lifelong learning skills. I will use it in a large class format with students at a wide range of levels. Thank you for your hard work in producing this truly superior product.' Scott E. Gold, University of Georgia

'This will be very popular and will certainly fill a major gap in the available textbook literature ? I will be recommending it on the MSc microbiology course I now help with.' Professor D. L. Hawksworth CBE, International Mycological Association, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, and Natural History Museum, London

'This book will be very useful to all industrial microbiologists. The 21st Century Guidebook to Fungi manages to combine classical mycology with advances in molecular phylogeny, and also covers recent advances in a whole host of other topics. The writing is crisp and concise. In particular, the layout is very well thought out. A wonderful starting point for anyone involved in working with fungi.' Dr Mark Loftus, L. F. Lambert Spawn Co.

'The idea of integrating both a CD-ROM and a book makes this very timely, and a powerful educational tool for use at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. The key aspects of mycology are comprehensively covered with excellent diagrams, figures and images to help the educational process.' Professor Naresh Magan, Cranfield University

'Fungi are significant things: without them, there would be no grasslands and forests and humans would never have evolved. The 21st Century Guidebook to Fungi introduces students to the vast sweep of fungal biology and does an admirable job of explaining what these fascinating organisms are, how they work, and what they do.' Nicholas P. Money, Miami University, Ohio

'Fungi are exciting organisms to study but they are often the preserve of the specialist. That's all changed with the production of this book. Moore, Robson and Trinci have now made fungi accessible to everyone with interesting comments, explanatory figures, clear illustrations and personal observations. Even if you are not a student of physiology or genetics the book is reader friendly such that you can pick the book up and choose a chapter. For those, amateur or student, who want to learn more about fungi this is your text; even the professional will find it of great use in refreshing the memory and I am sure will pick up a few tricks in doing so.' Professor Roy Watling MBE, FRSE, Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh

'? written in delightful prose, integrating concepts and interdisciplinary knowledge. ? very user friendly ? The CD is a great feature of the book, making this an outstanding resource. ? a very useful book for fungi aficionados, experts, students, and classroom teaching. This book could become a classic in the field and will be an enjoyable read for anyone wanting to learn more about fungi.' Plant Science Bulletin

'This is an innovative text, both in its presentation and its organization. The authors' broad experience and nearly encyclopedic knowledge lend strength and their many years of teaching experience all increase its value. The volume is remarkably well written and well copy edited. This book is a marvelous effort to holistically integrate mycology into modern systems biology.' David Yohalem, Inoculum
