"Straminipilous Fungi" presents a critical comparative review of the morphology and ultrastructure, morphogenesis, cytology, molecular biology and evolution of the biflagellate fungi. These organisms encompass the fungi formerly called oomycetes; taxonomically related heterotrophs studied by mycologists; plasmodiophorids and other heterotrophs. Appropriate comparisons are made with chromophyte algae, marine heterotrophs and chytridiaceous fungi.Little-known taxa which have been referred to the various orders of flagellate fungi are also listed together with citations. A new hierarchical classification is presented which is supported by systematic accounts and synoptic keys. Dichotomous keys based on habitat and habit are given to all known species of lagenidiaceous fungi, labyrinthulids and plasmodiophorids. A unique 'one stop' reference resource for plant pathologists is provided by the binominal lists, including host-related lists for the downy mildews. The book, including ca 4000 references, is a major text for post-graduate and research workers, particularly freshwater and marine biologists, soil ecologists and plant pathologists.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'All major mycological and plant pathological libraries should endeavour to secure a copy while stocks last.'
MYCOTAXON, April-June (2002)
`This epic treatise should be in every library with a microbiology collection.'
Mycological Research, 106 (October 2002)
`This critical and thoroughly written book summarizes the life's work of a well-known specialist. It will be an indispensable compendium for everyone interested in the diversity of flagellated fungus-like organisms.'
Journal of Phytopathology, 150:11-12 (2002)
`... well-written and surprisingly easy to read. [...] Straminipilous Fungi is destined to become a classic reference in the mycological literature. Every library dealing with fungal and protoctistan literature should own a copy of this book.'
Mycopathologia, 156 (2003)
