Fungi and Molds
Fungi and molds are parasitic plant like organisms that perform many beneficial functions in nature, but can cause disease in humans. Ringworm and athlete's foot are associated with fungi, and many respiratory problems are associated with the presence of too much mold. Using microphotographs and clear explanations, this compelling book identifies the major diseases caused by fungi and advises the reader about how to keep fungi and molds out of his or her environment.
