9780123820341: The Fungi, Third Edition

The Fungi, Third Edition, offers a comprehensive and thoroughly integrated treatment of the biology of the fungi. This modern synthesis highlights the scientific foundations that continue to inform mycologists today, as well as recent breakthroughs and the formidable challenges in current research. The Fungi combines a wide scope with the depth of inquiry and clarity offered by three leading fungal biologists. The book describes the astonishing diversity of the fungi, their complex life cycles, and intriguing mechanisms of spore release. The distinctive cell biology of the fungi is linked to their development as well as their metabolism and physiology. One of the great advances in mycology in recent decades is the recognition of the vital importance of fungi in the natural environment. Plants are supported by mycorrhizal symbioses with fungi, are attacked by other fungi that cause plant diseases, and are the major decomposers of their dead tissues. Fungi also engage in supportive and harmful interactions with animals, including humans. They are major players in global nutrient cycles.

This book is written for undergraduates and graduate students, and will also be useful for professional biologists interested in familiarizing themselves with specific topics in fungal biology.

  • Describes the diversity of the fungi, their life cycles, and mechanisms of spore release
  • Highlights the study of fungal genetics and draws upon a wealth of information derived from molecular biological research
  • Explains the cellular and molecular interactions that underlie the key roles of fungi in plant diversity and productivity
  • Elucidates the interactions of fungi with other microbes and animals
  • Highlights fungi in a changing world
  • Details the expanding uses of fungi in biotechnology

From the Back Cover:

The Fungi provides a comprehensive microbiological perspective on the importance of fungi, one of the most diverse groups of living organisms. Their roles in the natural world and in practical applications from the preparation of foods and beverages to drug production, and their relationship with man, animals and plants are clearly described. The recent contributions of molecular biology to mycology and the development of molecular methods for the study of fungal ecology, pathology and population genetics are also covered.
This invaluable work has been completely revised and updated. With new material relating to molecular biology, this new and highly successful title continues to be essential reading for students and researchers.
New to the second edition

Praise for the first edition:
"An enjoyable way to survey the subject of modern mycology. We are fortunate to have this excellent textbook."
--MYCOLOGIA
"The text is beautifully written and an understanding and enthusiasm for this important group of organisms comes through on every page."
--TRENDS IN MICROBIOLOGY
"This will improve undergraduate learning and promote a more integrated understanding of fungal biology. I will certainly use it in my teaching and am sure many others will do likewise."
--NEW PHYTOLOGIST
"The coverage is extensive and informative. I am very pleased to recommend this book to those who want to know and understand fungi."
--BIODIVERSITY AND CONSERVATION

Review:

Praise for the First Edition: "The style of The Fungi shows that the authors are all experienced teachers, with skills of how to present material in a readable and attractive way...In summary, start using this in your courses if you are not already doing so - it is one of the best two tools around at this time" --David L. Hawksworth for Mycological Research, March 2003 "...fills a gap between many textbooks of microbiology, biochemistry, genetics and ecology through covering topics specific to mycology that they often omit." --Meriel Jones for Microbiology Today, May 2002
