About this book

The diversity, ecological role and biotechnological applications of marine fungi have been addressed in numerous scientific publications in the last few years. This enormous spurt of information has led to a dire need among students and professionals alike for a source, which contains comprehensive reviews of various aspects of marine fungi. This book addresses this need, especially since it is written by reputed marine mycologists. The latest information on topics including molecular taxonomy and phylogeny, ecology of fungi in different marine habitats such as deep sea, corals, dead- sea, fungi in extreme marine environments and their biotechnological applications is reviewed. The book presents a comprehensive source of information and analysis aimed at marine fungi for researchers, teachers and students of marine mycology.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This volume neatly paves the way for future research on these enigmatic organisms and provides a great snapshot of the exciting progress being made in marine mycology around the globe. Great color diagrams and clear tables enhance this book and aid in its accessibility to anyone with an interest in marine fungi. … this enjoyable read is sure to inspire others to get their feet wet with marine fungi and fungus-like organisms.” (Allison Walker, Inoculum, Vol. 64 (6), December, 2013)

“The book details the latest developments in the field of marine mycology through comprehensive reviews of various aspects of marine fungi. … The book comprises 15 chapters which are supported by detailed illustrations, photographs and diagrams, and guides the lay person in understanding the latest information on topics … . should be available in all schools, research laboratories, community and university libraries.” (Kevin D. Hyde and Samantha C. Karunarathna, Fungal Diversity, Vol. 57, 2012)
