The Mycology Series serves as a premier source for information on the latest developments in all things fungal and publishes works encompassing all aspects of mycology. It covers a broad range of fungal topics and genres, including works intended as textbooks and scholarly monographs. As cutting-edge research opens novel avenues for study, the horizon for mycological research continues to expand. This series will be of interest to mycologists working in academic, agricultural, and industrial settings where fungi are used as model systems or harnessed for their economic potential.

During the 20th century, agriculture underwent many unsustainable changes for the sake of greater food production. Today, the effects of climate change are becoming ever more apparent and the global population continues to grow, placing additional pressures on agricultural systems. For this reason,...
