The fungal order Magnaporthales includes economically and scientifically important cereal and grass pathogens, such as the rice blast fungus, the summer patch pathogen, and the take-all root rot pathogen. The accumulated knowledge about the taxonomy, phylogeny, biogeography, and pathology of this fungal order is scattered across an ever-expanding range of periodicals and books dating back 140 years—until now.

The Rice Blast Fungus and Allied Species: A Monograph of the Fungal Order Magnaporthales compiles all of this knowledge in one resource. Authors Jing Luo and Ning Zhang provide dichotomous keys to the three families and 38 genera in Magnaporthales, along with color photos to facilitate identification. Morphological descriptions, diagnostic illustrations, type designations, geographical distributions, host ranges, and references are provided for representative taxa, with an emphasis on economically important species. In addition, GenBank accessions for fungal DNA barcodes, several other phylogenetic markers, and genome sequences for representative taxa are provided.

Collecting both historic records and recent advancements, The Rice Blast Fungus and Allied Species provides researchers with the most updated information and will facilitate future work on systematics, biodiversity, genetics, plant protection, and quarantine of an important fungal group.
