Mycotoxin research is focusing more and more on agriculturally important mycotoxins other than aflatoxins. However, few references have covered these mycotoxins in detail. This book fills that void by providing a through presentation of the chemistry and biology of these compounds and their impact on food safety, animal health, and productivity. The contents, that include 172 pages of spectra and accompanying analyses, are as follows:

I: Fusarium

  • The Biosynthetic Diversity of Secondary Metabolites
  • Epidemiology of Fusarium Ear Diseases of Cereals
  • Breeding for Resistance to Fusarium in Wheat and Maize
  • Spectral Characteristics of Secondary Metabolites from Fusarium Fungi

II: Aspergillus and Penicillium

  • Penicillium and Aspergillus Toxins
  • Ecological Aspects of Growth and Mycotoxin Production by Storage Fungi

III: Alternaria

  • Alternaria Toxins

IV: Effects of mycotoxins on animals

  • Immunotoxic Effects of Mycotoxins
  • Toxicology of Mycotoxins
  • Residues in Food Products of Animal Origin
  • Decontamination of Fusarium Mycotoxins

V: Consequences for humans

  • Prevention of Human Mycotoxicoses Through Risk Assessment and Risk Management
  • Factors Responsible for Economic Losses due to Fusarium Mycotoxin Contamination of Grains, Foods, and Feedstuffs
  • Diseases in Humans with Mycotoxins as Possible Causes
