Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

Descriptions of Fungi and Bacteria are a series of loose-leaf sheets issued in sets of 10, with four sets appearing each year. Each sheet provides a standardized statement of current knowledge about an individual species of fungus or bacterium, in an integrated format to assist identification or confirmation of identity of significant species. The statement, usually accompanied by an illustration, comprises: the organism's currently accepted scientific name and important synonyms (with full information about authors and place of publication);

  • a formal description
  • information about associated organisms and substrata
  • information about how the current organism interacts with those associated organisms and substrata
  • geographical distribution
  • notes on economic impacts, infraspecific variation, dispersal and transmission
  • an evaluation of the species' conservation status
  • general notes together with references to key literature

The sheets are designed for use particularly by plant pathologists and veterinary and medical mycologists. Many species covered by the series are therefore important economically (for example in food spoilage or as crop diseases). Organisms of significance in biodiversity, conservation and other applied fields such as biological control of insects and weeds, biodeterioration, biotechnology and industrial mycology are also covered. Some more recent sheets deal with commonly encountered saprobes or facultative pathogens. Almost all fungi covered are microscopic, although a few sheets describe larger species, mostly basidiomycete pathogens.
