While mycotoxin research is focusing more and more on agriculturally important mycotoxins other than aflatoxin, few references have covered these myctoxins in detail. This book fills that void by providing a through presentation of the chemistry and biology of these mycotoxins and their impact on food safety, animal health, and productivity.

"…strongly recommend that anyone seriously involved in fungal problems associated with foods and feeds or mycotoxicology buy this book."
—Trends in Food Science and Technology
"...a wealth of information that will be of interest to any who are concerned with mycotoxins...this is a well presented, detailed and interesting book...."
—Elsevier Science Ltd.
"...strongly recommend that anyone seriously involved in fungal problems associated with foods and feeds or in mycotoxicology buy this book."
—Trends in Food Science & Technology
"...this is a very useful book, authoritative and informative in the areas covered...the book is recommended to those who are interested in cereal production and utilization, as an essential step forward in our understanding of the (large) role of cereals in the exposure of humans and animals to mycotoxins."
—New Zealand Journal of Crop and Horticultural Science
"...of critical importance to food chemists, microbiologists, toxicologists, food technologists and sanitation specialists."
"Each chapter closes with an extensive list of literature cited, and an excellent index complements the text. This volume is full of clear and concise information on the important mycotoxins other than aflatoxin and would be useful to toxicologists, physicians, researchers and others others interested in the effects of this group of mycotoxins."
