Overview

Designed for graduate students and researchers, Dighton's (Rutgers U.; Institute of Marine and Coastal Science, New Brunswick) text summarizes the vast literature on fungi, with some 1300 references cited. The author begins with and then builds upon the list of functions fungi perform in ecosystems, as suggested by Alan Rayner in The Fungal Community: Its Structure and Function (Marcel Dekker, 1992), including the role of fungi in soil formation, plant primary production, sustenance of secondary producers, and regulation of plant and animal populations and communities. He also demonstrates how the world would function less satisfactorily in the absence of fungi. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
