Provides an excellent overview of traditional, modern and future aspects of applied mycology
THE MYCOTA Esser Bennett (Eds.) The Series: The fungi represent a heterogeneous assemblage of eukaryotic microorganisms and have become favored organisms for research at the cellular and molecular level. Such research involvement has been stimulated by interest in the biotechnological application of fungi in processes related to industry, agriculture and ecology. Considering both yeasts and mycelial fungi, THE MYCOTA highlights developments in both basic and applied research and presents an overview of funggal systematics and cell structure. Foremost authorities in research mycology have been assembled to edit and contribute to the volumes. This Volume: Industrial Applications Osiewacz (Ed.) The tenth volume includes: Traditional Food and Beverage Fermentation, Metabolites and Enzymes, Conversion of Substrates and Recovery of Metals from Solutions, Recent Developments and Strategies.
