Target Sites of Fungicide Action presents a critical examination of the mode of action of antifungal inhibitors, especially the mechanistical aspects of agricultural fungicides and antifungal drugs. It provides an interdisciplinary approach through its discussions of inhibitors with target sites in sterol biosynthesis, molecular studies in fungicide research, and fungal resistance. Researchers and students in plant pathology, mycology, and medicine will find this book to be a comprehensive summary of current knowledge, as well as a source of stimulation for future research in the field of applied mycology.
