Wood and Tree Fungi : Biology, Damage, Protection, and Use Hardback


This book provides an up-to-date overview of the various wood and tree fungi that damage trees, lumber, and timber.

Special focus is given to identification, prevention, and remediation techniques, and the book bridges the gap between research and application.

It covers the fundamentals of cytology and morphology. There is a more practical section describing damage by viruses and bacteria on trees.

The habitats of wood fungi are described as well as tree care.

Important tree pathogens and wood decay fungi are characterized for prevention and identification.

The final section focuses on the positive effects of wood-inhabiting microorganisms.
