Uniting-for the first time-current information on anaerobic fungi from a number of different disciplines, this unique reference examines the taxonomy, physiology, biochemistry, molecular biology, and ecology of anaerobic fungi-focusing on fungi from the rumen and other gut environments such as the cecum and hindgut of nonruminant herbivores. Anaerobic Fungi * Presents new techniques for culturing anaerobic fungi! * analyzes the isolation, culture, and survival of anaerobic fungi * describes the nucleic acids of anaerobic fungi, gene cloning, and the establishment of molecular phylogeny * discusses the fermentation of carbohydrates * explains how anaerobic fungi interact with other microorganisms * investigates the ultrastructure of plant cell walls degraded by fungi * details the effects of diet on fungal populations * delineates specific procedures for quantifying anaerobic fungi * outlines potential directions for future research in molecular genetics * and more!
