This useful new book provides a morphologically based system for the identification of the more common Aspergillus species as well as several uncommon species, which the author has included to demonstrate the breadth of variability in the genus.
The species descriptions are based on new information obtained by recording morphological observations on approximately five isolates of each species. These data was combined with previously published information to create a comprehensive species description.
Species descriptions are arranged alphabetically by species name and include colony diameters, colony colors and textures, microscopic characteristics, distinguishing features, taxonomic references, habitats, and, where applicable, common synonyms and major mycotoxins. On the page opposite each species description are photos of the colonies, conidial heads, conidia, and other distinctive features. Scanning electron micrographs are included to give a more three dimensional view of the conidia.
-- Morphologically based system for the identification of Aspergillus species
