Dennis Allsopp is formerly of the CAB International Mycological Institute, where he was Head of the Culture Collection and Industrial Services Division, and latterly the CAB International Biodiversity Coordinator. He has co-edited Smith's Industrial Mycology and Introduction to Biodeterioration.Review:
"The book is nicely expanded from the first edition, which I found so useful 20 years ago. ...the topics have been nicely expanded. I recommend this book to anyone wishing to expand their knowledge of microbiology (and bugs and mice) into additional areas of biodeterioration research."
