Fungal Biotechnology in Agricultural, Food, and Environmental Applications
Contributions from 80 world-renowned authorities representing a broad international background lend Fungal Biotechnology in Agricultural, Food, and Environmental Applicationsfirst-class information on the biotechnological potential of entomopathogenic fungi and ergot alkaloids, applications of Trichoderma in disease control, and the development of mycoherbicides. Additional topics include fungal control of nematodes, control of plant disease by arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, strategies for controlling vegetable and fruit crops, molecular biology tactics with mycotoxigenic fungi and the development of biofungicides, production of edible fungi, fermented foods, and high-value products like mycoprotein.
“Apart from the high quality and current relevance of the scientific content of this volume, an additional strength lies in the fact that (as well as extolling the virtues) the authors acknowledge the assumptions and limitations underlying the application of their specific tools…this highly readable volume represents an excellent resource for undergraduates, graduate students, and teachers…”
