Microfungi on Miscellaneous Substrates: An Identification Handbook
An encyclopaedic and fairly comprehensive account of the microfungi that grow on various non-plant substrates in Britain. These comprise discomycetes, other ascomycetes, hyphomycetes, coelomycetes and phycomycetes, plus a handful of basidiomycetes on other fungi and on bryophytes.
The larger chapters are broken down into groups of fungi (Discomycetes, Other Ascomycetes etc.). Each section begins with a key to genera; larger genera also have keys.
The final species accounts are quite short, but two thirds of them are illustrated with line drawings, principally of the microscopy.
Fungi parasitic on Rusts and Powdery Mildews are dealt with in "Microfungi on Land Plants: An Identification Handbook", by the same authors.
Excludes fungi on Insects (eg Hypocreales, Entomophthorales and Laboulbeniomycetes)
