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.

Wood-destroying fungi play an important role in nature, because they are the only forms of life capable of reducing wood to its initial constituents. However, they can also be dangerous for people and property, as they can impair the stability and fracture-safety of trees. This book gives detailed information, based on new and original scientfic findings, on the examination and effects of the most important species of fungi associated with failure of infected urban trees. In addition, new ways are presented for predicting the advance of decay in the living tree. The subject is illustrated and made easily accessible by numerous colored photos of fungus fruit bodies, defect symptoms, and macroscopic and microscopic pictures of wood decay. A detailed introduction to the fundamentals of wood pathology provides a way into the subjects of applied mycology and tree care for readers without previous special knowledge. Francis W.M.R.

Biological remediation methods have been successfully used to treat polluted soils. While bacteria have produced good results in bioremediation for quite some time now, the use of fungi to decontaminate soils has only recently been established. This volume of Soil Biology discusses the potentials of filamentous fungi in bioremediation. Fungi suitable for degradation, as well as genetically modified organisms, their biochemistry, enzymology, and practical applications are described. Chapters include topics such as pesticide removal, fungal wood decay processes, remediation of soils contaminated with heavy and radioactive metals, of paper and cardboard industrial wastes, and of petroleum pollutants.

This book is specifically designed to help those who diagnose diseases of trees to determine if the specific fungal disease found is known to lead to failures of limbs or trunks.

This book is specifically designed to help those who diagnose diseases of trees to determine if the specific fungal disease found is known to lead to failures of limbs or trunks. Falling limbs and trunks can lead to injury of people or property, or can disrupt services. This book was written by several forest pathology experts at the University of Florida. It offers easy to understand text and clear full-color photographs and descriptions of 89 of the most common tree fungi found in Florida and the Southeast United States.

Wood decay is a deterioration of wood by primarily enzymatic activities of microorganisms. For practical purposes, fungi are the only agents of wood decay. Fungi which grow on wood are sometimes called "lignicolous" fungi. But why develop a set of keys limited to fungi utilizing wood as a substrate? After all, being lignicolous does not define a taxonomic category. Lignicolous fungi include ascomycetes and basidiomycetes and a large number of classes and orders within each of these groups. Most of these taxa include both lignicolous and terrestrial species. Rather than taxonomy, the keys focus on the biological activity holding this otherwise disparate group of fungi together: their ability to degrade cellulose and lignin, the major components of wood. Forest trees and valuable landscape trees can be infected and rotted by these fungi. Knowing the species growing on a tree can help the forester determine the likely extent of loss. Different species are associated with different amounts of decay in the tree. Additionally, some species are restricted to sapwood and will not affect the merchantable volume of heartwood. Some fungi can decay sound wood; others decay only decaying wood.
