From the book reviews:“This book provides information about the various patterns of communications. … This book further serves as a learning tool for research aspects in biocommunication in fungi. It will guide scientists in further investigations on fungal behavior, how they mediate signaling processes between themselves and the environment. Should be available in all research laboratories dealing with mycology, community and university libraries.” (Anupama Daranagama and Kevin D. Hyde, Fungal Diversity, December, 2014)
