The fungi are one of the great groups of living organisms, comparable in numbers of species, diversity and ecological significance with animals, plants, protists and bacteria. This textbook deals with all fundamental and applied aspects of mycology, illustrated by reference to well studied species from major fungal groups. Since the publication of the first edition of The Fungi, there have been many important advances in the field of mycology. This second up-to-date edition has been revised and substantially expanded, and incorporates the application of methods of molecular biology, especially DNA technology to mycology.

  • Question and answer section at the end of each chapter
  • Modern classification based on Molecular phylogeny
  • Detail of the recent increased understanding of the organelles and processes involved in hyphal growth
  • New molecular understanding of mating type genes
  • The latest on molecular recognition in the infection process
  • The use of DNA technology in engineering plant resistance to fungal diseases
  • New section on medical mycology
  • Fungal mycology in animals
  • The latest on the use of genetically manipulated fungi to produce products earlier obtained from mammals

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:

  • Modern classification
  • Medical and veterinary mycology section
  • Organelles and processes involved in hyphal growth
  • Molecular methods in ecology and pathology
  • Production of new drugs of fungal origin
