Recent Mycological Researches by S C Sati
Microbes, including fungi, constitute an important component of biodiversity. They comprise one of the biggest kingdoms in the living world. A lot of work has been done in mycology in the past several years in India and abroad. The present book comprises a collection of 26 original research articles by eminent mycologists. This book would be very useful for researchers, teachers and students studying mycology. These articles have been categorized under the following four major sections.
Audience of the Book :
This book very useful to all scientists, teachers, student interested in mycology and mycology literature.
The main features of the book are as follows:
1.Chapters are spread into four sections; fungal flora/diversity, fungal diseases/management, fungal physiology/ecology/pollution, fungal biotechnology/symbiosis.
2.Original research findings and reporting of a few new fungal varieties is a major highlight of the book.
3.All the articles includes a summary and keywords in the beginning.
