Book summary

Illustrated Genera of Ascomycetes, Volume II is the companion reference on ascomycete taxonomy to Illustrated Genera of Ascomycetes, Volume I, the first book written in English to aid in the identification of ascomycetes.

A key to 100 genera of ascomycetes not included in Volume I is provided, followed by descriptions and illustrations of each genus. Genera are arranged in the following order: hyalosporae, allantosporae, phaeosporae, hyalodidymae, phaeodidymae, scolecosporae, hyalophragmiae, phaeophragmiae, hyalodictyaem and phaeodictyae. Within spore types, genera are arranged according to the type of ascoma formed.

Illustrations and photographs created especially for Volume II are helpful tools in ascomycete taxonomy and classification. They provide users with a visual reference with which to compare their own specimens. Illustrated Genera of Ascomycetes, Volume II is a must-have for educators, students, plant pathologists, mycologists, and others who need to identify ascomycetes. [via]
