The Fungal Community: Its Organization and Role in the Ecosystem, Third Edition

This variation promotes knowledge of the useful equipment of class over taxonomic tools, and techniques the concept that of fungal groups from an ecological standpoint, instead of from a fungicentric view.

Detecting Ecological Impacts: Concepts and Applications in Coastal Habitats
