Frontiers In Fungal Ecology, Diversity And Metabolites by K R Sridhar
Book Summary:

Mycology is a frontier area of research in life sciences. Fungi represent one of the three major evolutionary segments along with plants and animals. Fungal multidimensional features with basic and applied value projected their potential beyond routine systematics, diversity and environmental studies. In view of tremendous developments in the field of Mycology, the present treatise emphasizes various aspects of contemporary issues in mycology. It comprises 22 chapters with emphasis on the fungal ecology, diversity and metabolites. The topics treated include aquatic ecology, diversity and phylogeny, mutualism and interactions, potential metabolites, pathology and toxins, fungal infections and prevention, cell permeabilization and advances in monocarboxylate transporters in yeasts with an emphasis on cancer therapy.

Key Features:

The main features of the book are as follows:

1.The subject matter is compiled in 22 chapters covering broadly the major issues of fungal ecology, diversity and metabolites.

2.Serves as a valuable source of information on frontier areas of mycology: ecological amplitudes, conservation, novel methods of assessment and bioprospecting.

3.The chapters are contributed by 39 eminent scientists and academicians.
