  • Freshwater Fungiby E. B. Gareth Jones; Ka-Lai Pang; Kevin D Hyde

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 210.00

    Freshwater habitats are rich in fungi with some 3,000 described species, most literature focussing on their identification, substrata they grow on and world distribution. However, these fungi play an important role in the freshwater ecosystem, and are primarily involved in the breakdown of leaf litter contributing food for detritus feeders. This book... more...

  • Genomics of Plant-Associated Fungiby Ralph A. Dean; Ann Lichens-Park; Chittaranjan Kole

    Springer 2014; US$ 189.00

  • The Dictyostelidsby Kenneth Bryan Raper

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 74.50

    Kenneth Raper tells how dictyostelids are isolated, cultivated, and conserved in the laboratory; how myxamoebae aggregate to form multicellular pseudoplasmodia; how fructifications arise by transformation of amoeboid cells into stalk cells and spores; and how similar cells can, under certain conditions, enter a sexual phase. For each known dictyostelid... more...
