1 Review
Uniting-for the first time-current information on anaerobic fungi from a number of different disciplines, this unique reference examines the taxonomy, physiology, biochemistry, molecular biology, and ecology of anaerobic fungi-focusing on fungi from the rumen and other gut environments such as the cecum and hindgut of nonruminant herbivores.
Anaerobic Fungi
  • Presents new techniques for culturing anaerobic fungi!
  • analyzes the isolation, culture, and survival of anaerobic fungi
  • describes the nucleic acids of anaerobic fungi, gene cloning, and the establishment of molecular phylogeny
  • discusses the fermentation of carbohydrates
  • explains how anaerobic fungi interact with other microorganisms
  • investigates the ultrastructure of plant cell walls degraded by fungi
  • details the effects of diet on fungal populations
  • delineates specific procedures for quantifying anaerobic fungi
  • outlines potential directions for future research in molecular genetics
  • and more!
