Riassunto: This 3rd/edition is a compact but comprehensive encyclopedia of all things mycological. It explores every aspect of the fungi, from aflatoxin to zoospores, with an accessible blend of verve and wit. The 24 chapters are filled with up-to-date information on classification, yeasts, lichens, spore dispersal, allergies, ecology, genetics, plant pathology, predatory fungi, biological control, mutualistic symbioses with animals and plants, fungi as food, food spoilage and mycotoxins, poisonous and hallucinogenic fungi, medical mycology, antibiotics and organ transplants. Personal anecdotes drawn from a lifetime of involvement with fungi, and a comprehensive glossary make this a perfect introduction to the kingdom of the fungi The author's website contains many color photographs of the fungi in the book. The accompanying CD-Rom is only available from the author, and does not come with the text.
