Description

Fungi belonging to the genera "Trichoderma" and "Gliocladium" are soil- bourne saprophytes which have been used for industrial and agricultural Applications For Decades. Some Strains Produce Enzymes And Antibiotics while others are useful as biological agents for the protections of plants against pathogens.; The first volume gives a detailed account of the morphology and taxonomy of "Trichoderma" and "Gliocladium", before discussing their ecology and basic biology. Molecular biological aspects examined include their genome and gene structure, genetic transformation and asexual genetics. A chapter on safety aspects is also included.; The second volume describes the commercial uses of "Trichoderma" and "Gliocladium", beginning with an in depth discussion of the degradation of polysaccharides and macromolecules by fungal enzymes. The application of the fungi in biocontrol for agricultural purposes is then examined. The final section of this volume deals with protein production and the utilization of "Trichoderma" enzymes by various industries.show more
