Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Revised and updated in accordance with modern taxonomic proposals, this edition offers a well-documented, logical and clear explanation of the structure and classification of fungi along with an introduction to physiological, biochemical, genetic and ecological data. The taxonomic approach provides a framework with predictive value. Therefore, the discussions of the numerous activities of fungi that directly or indirectly impact other living things, including humans, are discussed in the context of their close relatives. Contains scores of illustrations, life cycle drawings, tables and new photographs.

Book News Annotation:

**** Revised edition (the third [1979] is cited in BCL3) of a phylogenetically-based textbook that comprehensively covers all the organisms traditionally considered as fungi, rather than only the four phyla comprising the kingdom Fungi. The first three chapters, as well as those chapters and chapter sections that introduce the various phyla, are appropriate for shorter undergraduate and graduate courses, while other sections relating to specific groups of fungi are considerably more detailed. Thoroughly illustrated and extensively referenced.
