One-stop resource for those who need to identify fungi -- includes keys to classes, orders, and families; an illustrated glossary; hundreds of illustrations; and a guide to literature. More than 500 Illustrations!
The Identification of Fungi: An Illustrated Introduction with Keys, Glossary, and Guide to Literature is a comprehensive manual that gives beginners the skills to identify fungi. In addition to plant pathogenic fungi, the manual covers mushrooms, slime molds, fungi of clinical significance, indoor air fungi, and other aspects of mycology.
This manual covers all groups of fungi and fungus-like organisms and includes over 500 diagrams and line drawings. Descriptions of major groups (phylogenetic and artificial), simplified keys to family, and an illustrated glossary enable placement of common fungi into the appropriate taxonomic category. Text and glossary are coordinated to introduce fundamentals of mycological terminology. Over 30 pages of references are provided for literature on identification of cultures and specimens, and references are also given for contemporary phylogenetic research on each major taxonomic group.
The manual will be a useful resource for general mycology courses, as well as an excellent ancillary reference for courses in plant pathology, medical mycology, or microbiology. Technicians, extension agents, clinicians, air quality specialists, microbiologists, or any others needing a comprehensive introduction will also find this manual a useful addition to their bookshelves.
Dr. Dugan is Research Plant Pathologist with USDA-Agricultural Research Service and formerly Collection Scientist for Mycology and Botany at American Type Culture Collection. Throughout his career he has authored articles on fungi found in various hosts or environments.
