With about 1.5 million species estimated to exist worldwide, members of the kingdom Fungi represent one of the largest biodiversity resources of our planet, fulfilling crucial ecological roles especially in terrestrial ecosystems. Fungi are also one of the most diverse groups or organisms in terms of taxonomy, morphology and life cycles. These aspects are covered in Mycology Volume 1 and Mycology Volume 2, the long-awaited second edition of the original videodiscs published in 1990-1994.
A well-structured menu facilitates easy access to all sequences and images at the click of a button. These interactive DVD will be indispensible teaching tools for university classes as well as adult education classes, high schools, natural history societies and other groups of people interested in the exciting and mysterious world of the fungi.

“Whether you are teaching plant pathology or basic mycology, these DVDs are an indispensible addition to your teaching armory. This should be available in all university libraries and colleges where science is taught and even in schools.
