atlas of clinically important fungi

carmen v. sciortino

description

although there are many texts that provide quality information for the identification of fungi, researchers and technologists rarely have time to read the text. most are rushed for time and seek morphological information that helps guide them to the identification of fungi. the atlas of clinically important fungi provides readers with an alphabetical list of fungi as well as listing the division of fungi by both sporulation and morphology. the characteristic traits for a particular fungus are displayed through a series of images, with the fungi appearing as they did in the author's lab on the day(s) that testing was performed. for this reason, numerous (6-20) color photographs are included so that technologists will have sufficient reference photos for identifying the various morphologies of a single organism. organism photographs begin with the macroscopic colony views followed by the microscopic views. also included for some microorganisms, are clinical pathology photographs demonstrating how the organism appears in human tissues. a collection of literature citations are also provided to enable further reading.
this user-friendly fungi atlas provides a resource for those seeking information in the field of medical mycology, specifically with regards to identifying an organism using the parameters of culture morphology.show more
