By Geoffrey Michael Gadd

Fungi play very important roles within the biking of components within the biosphere yet are usually overlooked inside microbiological and geochemical study spheres. Symbiotic mycorrhizal fungi are chargeable for significant variations and redistribution of inorganic foodstuff, whereas free-living fungi have significant roles within the decomposition of natural fabrics, together with xenobiotics. Fungi also are significant biodeterioration brokers of stone, wooden, plaster, cement and different development fabrics, and are vital parts of rock-inhabiting microbial groups. the purpose of this 2006 ebook is to advertise additional realizing of the most important roles that free-living and symbiotic fungi (in mycorrhizas and lichens) play within the biogeochemical biking of parts, the chemical and organic mechanisms which are concerned, and their environmental and biotechnological value. the place applicable, relationships with micro organism also are mentioned to spotlight the dynamic interactions which could exist among those significant microbial teams and their built-in functionality in numerous types of habitat.
