Imported Foods: Microbiological Issues and Challenges
Author: Michael P. Doyle, University of Georgia Center for Food Safety

The Fungal Kingdom: Diverse and Essential Roles in Earth's Ecosystem
Prepared by Arturo Casadevall, Joe Heitman, and Merry Buckley

Fungi can cause a number of life threatening diseases but they also are becoming increasingly useful to science and manufacturing every year.

Research on fungi and fungal diseases are seriously neglected as a result, a situation with grave negative repercussions for human health, agriculture, and the environment. The Fungal Kingdom explores the roles fungi play in the world around us.
