Fungal Biology is the fully updated new edition of this undergraduate text, covering all major areas of fungal biology and providing insights into many topical areas. Provides insights into many topical areas such as fungal ultrastructure and the mechanisms of fungal growth, important fungal metabolites and the molecular techniques used to study fungal populations. Focuses on the interactions of fungi that form the basis for developing biological control agents, with several commercial examples of the control of insect pests and plant diseases. Emphasises the functional biology of fungi, with examples from recent research. Includes a clear illustrative account of the features and significance of the main fungal groups.Content: Chapter 1 Introduction: The Fungi and Fungal Activities (pages 1–15): Jim DeaconChapter 2 The Diversity of Fungi and Fungus?Like Organisms (pages 16–47): Jim DeaconChapter 3 Fungal Structure and Ultrastructure (pages 48–66): Jim DeaconChapter 4 Fungal Growth (pages 67–84): Jim DeaconChapter 5 Differentiation and Development (pages 85–109): Jim DeaconChapter 6 Fungal Nutrition (pages 110–121): Jim DeaconChapter 7 Fungal Metabolism and Fungal Products (pages 122–141): Jim DeaconChapter 8 Environmental Conditions for Growth, and Tolerance of Extremes (pages 142–157): Jim DeaconChapter 9 Fungal Genetics, Molecular Genetics, and Genomics (pages 158–183): Jim DeaconChapter 10 Fungal Spores, Spore Dormancy, and Spore Dispersal (pages 184–212): Jim DeaconChapter 11 Fungal Ecology: Saprotrophs (pages 213–236): Jim DeaconChapter 12 Fungal Interactions: Mechanisms and Practical Exploitation (pages 237–255): Jim DeaconChapter 13 Fungal Symbiosis (pages 256–278): Jim DeaconChapter 14 Fungi as Plant Pathogens (pages 279–308): Jim DeaconChapter 15 Fungal Parasites of Insects and Nematodes (pages 309–321): Jim DeaconChapter 16 “The Moulds of Man” (pages 322–337): Jim DeaconChapter 17 Principles and Practice of Controlling Fungal Growth (pages 338–355): Jim Deacon
