This is the one essential handbook for all who work with or are interested in fungi (including lichens, slime moulds, and yeasts). This new edition, with 20,000 entries, provides the most complete listing of generic names of and terms used to describe fungi available. For each genus, the authority, the date of publication, status, systematic position, number of accepted species, distribution, and key references are given. Diagnoses of families, orders and higher categories are included for most groups. In addition, there are biographic notes, information on well-known metabolites and mycotoxins, and broad accounts of almost all pure and applied aspects of the subject (including citations of important literature). In addition the eighth edition has the following new features: a revised general classification of fungal phyla reflecting the latest molecular evidence; entries for all recognized families, including authorship and date of publication; a dichotomous identification key to the recognized families in all groups (the first to appear since 1931); a synopsis of the proposed classification: with accepted genera listed, families, etc.; entries for major fungal reference and genetic resource collections; illustrations updated and placed in text; and new entries for terms used in biology where they are relevant to mycology.
