Mushrooms Poisons and Panaceas: A Handbook for Naturalists, Mycologists, and Physicians
by Denis R. Benjamin
1995-05-01
Mushrooms Poisons and Panaceas: A Handbook for Naturalists, Mycologists, and Physicians List Price: $34.95
Used Price: $62.00
A practicing pathologist and amateur mycologist in Seattle, Benjamin exhibits a rare combination of love for mushrooms and a healthy respect for the medical dangers they can pose. He discusses the signs, symptoms, and treatment for mushroom poisoning and suggests the right questions to ask during diagnosis. His 32 color photographs can help with rapid identifications during a medical emergency. He also evaluates the health and nutritional aspects of different species of mushrooms.

The Fungi
by Michael J. Carlile, Sarah Watkinson
1995-05-01
The Fungi List Price: $56.00
Used Price: $12.00
An introductory text that takes a microbiological perspective to fungi, covering aspects of the fungi of importance in a wide range of disciplines. Revisions to this edition from the 1994 edition include improved presentation of the place of fungi in the major groups of organisms and new material on how hyphae and yeast cells grow, mating in fungi and genetic recombination in nature, threats to fungal biodiversity and conversation issues, the molecular basis of fungal pathogenicity, and medical mycology. Chapters end with questionsanswers appear at the end of the text. B&w illustrations, with a half dozen in color.

The Physiology of Fungal Nutrition
by D. H. Jennings
1995-03-09
The Physiology of Fungal Nutrition List Price: $220.00
Our Price: $161.28
Used Price: $193.95
The nutrition of a vegetative fungal colony can be viewed as a web of interconnected processes. In this volume, the author provides a mechanistic basis to the subject, focusing on processes at the plasma membrane, considering the modulating effects of the fungal wall and describing the fate of nutrients entering the fungus. The major emphasis is physiological, but biomechanical and molecular biological information has been drawn upon as appropriate to reflect the power of the multifaceted approach and encourage such further study. A comprehensive review of what is known for the more commonly studied fungal species is complemented by information on other fungi to provide an indication of the diversity of nutritional processes that exist in the fungal kingdom.

Handbook of Mushroom Poisoning : Diagnosis and Treatment List Price: $289.95
Our Price: $289.95
Used Price: $140.00
The new, updated Handbook of Mushroom Poisoning provides an in-depth examination of mushroom poisoning, including case examples for each toxic class. The book contains specific chapters on mushroom poison pharmacology and new approaches to treatment of cases caused by an unknown mushroom or unknown poison. For those who want a broader background, there are sections on gross and microscopic mushroom identification, general information about the types of toxic substances found in various mushroom families, and tables detailing the results of various field and laboratory tests.

The Biology of Fungi
by C.T. Ingold, H.J. Hudson
1993-08-01
The Biology of Fungi List Price: $59.50
Used Price: $0.97
This is a thorough update of an introductory text on mycology, last revised in 1984. Fungal classification has been brought up-to-date and new material added on fungal growth, fungi as pathogens of plants, and mycorrhizal associations. The new edition also includes an increased emphasis on fungal physiology and a new chapter on fungal genetics. Numerous new line drawings and micrographs give the book a modern look and an attractive set of colour plates complete the picture. This book should be of interest to first years in life sciences, (courses in fungi or mycology) including botany students.

The Ecology of Mycorrhizae (Cambridge Studies in Ecology)
by Michael F. Allen
1991-04-25
The Ecology of Mycorrhizae (Cambridge Studies in Ecology) List Price: $34.99
Our Price: $31.20
Used Price: $28.85
A great many terrestrial plants live in close association with fungi. The features of this association, which is known as mycorrhiza, are those of a mutualistic symbiosis. Almost all plants from mycorrhizae whereby the fungus provides soil resources to the plant in exchange for energy provided by the plant. The symbiosis means greater productivity under stress for the plant and a steady energy supply for the fungus. This book addresses the diverse and complex ways in which mycorrhizae affect the mechanism for plant survival as individuals and populations, for community structure and functioning. An evolutionary/ecological approach is used to describe how and under what conditions mycorrhizal symbioses range from managing natural and agricultural lands to biotechnological processes that enhance agricultural productivity and sustainability. The Ecology of Mycorrhizae will be an invaluable book, applicable to all levels of theoretical and applied research in agronomy, botany, ecology, environmental microbiology, and plant pathology.
