            'As the world of mushrooms opened up to me I began to see that the path back to life was easier than I had thought. It was simply a matter of gathering delights that flash and sparkle. All I had to do was follow the mushroom trail, even though I still didn't know where it would l...ead. What would I find in the great unknown that lay ahead of me? What lay beyond those hilltops and mists and turns in the road?' When Long Litt Woon loses her husband of 32 years to an unexpected death, she is utterly bereft. An immigrant in his country, in losing the love of her life she has also lost her compass and her passport to society. For a time, she is stuck, aimless, disoriented. It is only when she wanders off deep into the woods with mushroom hunters and is taught there how to see clearly what is all around her, and learn how to make distinctions, take educated risks and hear all the different melodies in Nature's chorus, that she returns to life and to living. And it is mushrooms which guide her back. In this book, she describes how they saved her, and how they might save you.

            Fungi are known to produce low molecular weight compounds and several cholesterol-lowering ones like the statins. Compounds such as the cytochalasins, peptaibols, grisan and scirpene derivatives are found only in fungi. This volume intends to bring together what we know about the... fungi from different environments.

            This book reviews how fungi function as individuals, populations, and members of the global economy of nature. The second edition follows in the footsteps of its highly-praised predecessor, presenting the latest information on fungal biology generated through the application of g...enetics, molecular biology, and biochemistry. The text covers such topics as scavenging and nutrient cycling, DNA-based identification, and circadian rhythms in fungi. A new chapter addresses alcoholic fermentation and founding of biotechnology, methods of identification of commercial yeast strains, large-scale production of ethanol as a fuel, Fleming's discovery of a penicillin-producing fungus, and more.
