A primer on the Fungi

[Reposting from my lab website]

Our primer on the Fungi is available (currently free) on the Current Biology website.  A version with extra refs inserted is available in pre-print format here. In this primer we provide a broad overview of the major evolutionary defined groups within Fungal kingdom. Our intention is make the kingdom a little less mysterious for non-mycologists and introduce some open areas of research that require integrating evolutionary, morphological, and molecular research. This was joint work with Mary BerbeeMeredith BlackwellDavid HibbettTim JamesJoey Spatafora, & John Taylor.

Also thanks to several people for access to images: Jeffrey RollinsSabine HuhndorfDavid McLaughlin & lab, George BarronGreg Jedd, and Michelle Momany.
