Set in the mould of the classifications furnished in Ainsworth and Bisby's "Dictonary of the Fungi" (10th edition, 2008), this text is ideally meant for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of Botany of all leading Indian universities. Based on morphology, ultra-structure, biochemistry and molecular biology, the book imparts a fresh insight into the exciting world of fungi and other fungus-like organisms. The author has laid due importance not only to Fungi, but also to Chromista (Straminopila) and Protozoa which represent distinct monophyletic group. Select references at the end of each chapter provide the students with avenues to pursue further studies on specific topics.
