During the recent years great advances have been made in nearly all fields of plant sciences. Frontiers in Plant Sciences is an attempt to bring all these widely different aspects together in one volume. The present volume contains wide ranging articles on Taxonomy of Fungi, Microbial Ecology and Applied Microbiology (including aerobiology, mycorrhizae, soil rhizosphere, microflora and biological control of plant diseases). Algae an aquatic angiosperms have also been given the due space. Comprehensive or concise, it offers a detailed overview of applied aspects of Botany in terms of its theoretical, methodological and empirical contribution. With emphasis on interdisciplinary aspects, it highlights recent prospective linkages among diverse research paradigms. All those interested in the pursuit of Plant Sciences will find this volume useful and stimulating. Audience: Botany: Students and Research scholars in Mycology, Plant Pathology, Microbial Technology, Microbial Ecology and Applied Microbiology
