Presents the latest advances in the study of the intracellular fate and transport of metal ions in fungi, emphasizing the mechanisms that regulate cellular concentration. The book explains the expanding relationship between molecular genetics and inorganic biochemistry.
". . .A very good arrangement of the chapters facilitates the reading of the book and well-chosen schemes, formulae, and figures correspond well to the contents of the book and contribute to its better understanding. "
---Acta Physiologiae Plantarum
". . .Because of its interdisciplinary approach, [it is recommended] not only to mycologists and microbiologists but also to molecular geneticists, biochemists, and bioinorganic chemists. "
". . .amply illustrated with an extensive bibliography. . .essential reading for anyone working with metals and fungi and also important for those with a wider perspective on the increasing and important use of fungi as model eukaryotes. "
