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.
