Fungal Associations

This new edition of Fungal Associations, which focuses on mycorrhizas, lichens and fungal-bacterial symbioses has been completely revised, updated and expanded. Renowned experts present thorough reviews and discuss the most recent findings on molecular interactions between fungi and plants or bacteria that lead to morphological alterations and novel properties in the symbionts. New insights into the beneficial impact of fungal associations on ecosystem health are provided and documented with striking examples.

From the book reviews: "The Mycota highlights developments in both basic and applied research and presents an overview of fungal systematics. ... This edition surely encourages young researchers in the mycology field opening to new advanced modern ideas. Besides, it is also very useful for ecologists who work on fungal associations in the environment. Should be available in all mycological research laboratories and university libraries." (AnupamaDaranagama and Samantha C. Karunarathna, Fungal Diversity, December, 2014)
