This fully revised 3rd edition provides a comprehensive overview of the biology of fungi associated with plants. Since the publication of the 2nd Edition in 2009, tremendous new knowledge has been gained in the field of fungal-plant interactions, which is reflected in the contributions of this book.
World-leading scientists in the field provide authoritative insights into fungal-plant interactions covering the following main topics:
Mutualistic and pathogenic fungal-plant interactions in natural and agricultural ecosystems
Sensing and signalling in fungus-plant interactions
Regulation of fungal gene expression and development
Fungal genomes and evolution
Global pandemics caused by fungal pathogens and their implications for food security
This volume will be of great interest to both specialists and generalists. It is an indispensable resource for researchers, lecturers and students in microbiology, mycology, and plant sciences, as well as agriculture and biotechnology.
