Mycology


About the Series

The Mycology Series serves as a premier source for information on the latest developments in all things fungal and publishes works encompassing all aspects of mycology. It covers a broad range of fungal topics and genres, including works intended as textbooks and scholarly monographs. As cutting-edge research opens novel avenues for study, the horizon for mycological research continues to expand. This series will be of interest to mycologists working in academic, agricultural, and industrial settings where fungi are used as model systems or harnessed for their economic potential.

Defensive Mutualism in Microbial Symbiosis

Defensive Mutualism in Microbial Symbiosis

1st Edition

James F. White Jr., Monica S. Torres
November 14, 2018

Anemones and fish, ants and acacia trees, fungus and trees, buffaloes and oxpeckers--each of these unlikely duos is an inimitable partnership in which the species’ coexistence is mutually beneficial. More specifically, they represent examples of defensive mutualism, when one species receives...

Fungi in Ecosystem Processes

Fungi in Ecosystem Processes

2nd Edition

John Dighton
March 08, 2016

This new edition of Fungi in Ecosystem Processes continues the unique approach of examining the roles of fungi from the perspective of ecosystem functions. It explores how fungi have adapted to survive within particular constraints, how they help to maintain homeostasis in ecosystems, how they...

Food Mycology: A Multifaceted Approach to Fungi and Food

Food Mycology: A Multifaceted Approach to Fungi and Food

1st Edition

Jan Dijksterhuis, Robert A. Samson
June 26, 2007

For millennia, the presence of fungi in food has been both boon and bane to food stores. Fungi can spoil large quantities of food and produce dangerous toxins that threaten human health; however, fungal spoilage in certain foods can produce a unique, highly prized food source and there are some...
