Overview

Most genetics textbooks deal adequately with plant and animal genetics, but tend to neglect fungi. The authors have produced a book that will compensate for this imbalance. This book discusses the genetics of fungi in a way that is attractive and challenging, succinct yet comprehensive, sensitive to commercial and applied aspects, yet also theoretical, dealing with their genetics from molecules to individuals to population. This short text will be an ideal supplement to the established basic genetics texts or can be used as the sole text for an advanced course devoted to fungal genetics.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The authors have undoubtedly succeeded in their main aim of producing a readable yet challenging text which will appeal to keen undergraduates and their teachers alike. In particular, the inclusion of both classical and molecular techniques together makes for a satisfying read. Each chapter is organized logically and carefully leads the reader through, at times, complex ideas. ...a valuable addition to the literature which I will certainly recommend as a reference source for our final year undergraduates studying fungal genetics." Mycological Research

"...this is a valuable contribution on these fascinating and important organisms." Microbiology Today

"This book will serve as a comprehensive resource for courses in fungal genetics and will be useful for upper-division undergraduate and graduate students as well as professionals in molecular fungal biology, mycology,
plant pathology, microbiology, medical mycology and other disciplines in which fungi have an important role." -CHOICE
