Edited by M Rai and P Bridge
The fungal kingdom consists of a wide variety of organisms with a diverse range of forms and functions.
Fungi have been utilized for thousands of years and their importance in agriculture, medicine, food production
and the environmental sciences is well known. New advances in genomic and metabolomic technologies have
allowed further developments in the use of fungi in industry and medicine, increasing the need for a compilation
of new applications, developments and technologies across the mycological field.
Hardback 336 pp ISBN 9781845935344
Applied Mycology brings together a range of contributions, highlighting the diverse nature of current research.
Chapters include discussions of fungal associations in the environment, agriculture and forestry, long established
and novel applications of fungi in fermentation, the use of fungi in the pharmaceutical industry, the growing
recognition of fungal infections, current interests in the use fungal enzymes in biotechnology and the new and
emerging field of myconanotechnology.
Readership: Researchers and students with an interest in applied mycology and the food, plant, pharmaceutical,
medical and environmental sciences.
