About this book

Provided here are both reviews and recent results of studies with medically important fungi. Throughout the volume, outstanding mycologists treat the ecological role of pathogenic fungi, how they cause disease, their interactions with the immune system, and their responses to antifungal agents. Most of the presented results are based on molecular biological approaches: areas where classical and descriptive methods are applied are also included.

 

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Given the increasing interest in medically important fungi, this volume fills a gap in addressing the molecular basis of the interaction between human pathogenic fungi and their hosts. An impressive list of international authors have written chapters which include detailed coverage of the wide range of molecular techniques used to study epidemiology, pathogenesis and human/pathogen interactions.  ... This volume should be an essential acquisition for mycologists and institutions working on medically important fungi ..." (Microbiology today)
"... has an illustrious line up of authors and the reviews are very well written and match the high standard set by their predecessors. ... the series as a whole remains very highly recommended for all institutions where fungal research is carried out or where a series of well informed reference books are required for advanced undergraduate students or postgraduates working in mycology." (Mycopathologia)

"This volume fills a gap in addressing the molecular basis of the interaction between human pathogenic fungi and their hosts. An impressive list of international authors have written chapters which include detailed coverage of the wide range of molecular techniques used to study epidemiology, pathogenesis and human/pathogen interactions. … Each topic is supported with a full, comprehensive and invaluable bibliography. This volume should be an essential acquisition for mycologists and institutions working on medically important fungi … ." (Alistair R. McCracken, Microbiology Today, Vol. 31, May, 2004)
