A Lavishly Illustrated And Comprehensive Work On The Fungus And Its Impact On Other Organisms That Collates The Results Of Valuable Researches In This Field, And For Further Reference It Incorporates Copious References To Important Mycological Literature. All The Major Classes Of Fungi, Namely, Phycomycetes, Ascomycetes, Basidioycetes And Fungi Imperfecti Have Been Discussed In The Book, Besides An Introductory Chapter On Physiology And A Special Section Devoted To Mycological Technique. It Should Be A Highly Useful Volume For Students As Well As Scholars And Researchers Working On The Fungi.
