The new Atlas of Clinical Fungi
This Autumn, the Atlas of Clinical Fungi will appear in print. With several thousands of pages in full colour covering more than 700 fungi, the book provides a wealth of information on medical mycology. Several volumes are organized in analogy of the Fungal Kingdom, and because it includes numerous opportunists it is also useful for workers outside the medical area. Complementary to the search tools of the website, the book provides an overview of the rich data collected over 30 years of medical mycology, covering diagnostics, taxonomy, phylogeny, nomenclature, antifungals, and histopathology, validated by almost 8000 references. The layout is pleasant to read, and the photo plates are stunning, often showing unique features of the fungi.
