The book ''Fungi, Microbiology and Plant Pathology'' is a text written for Under-Graduate students with the aim to provide an updated and modern view of the subjects covered in it. Students of higher classes can also use it as a primer to more elaborated texts. Mycology or study of fungi has become more interesting these days with the accumulation of new knowledge during last few decades. The book presents most modern view on the taxonomy and systematics of fungi. Modern tools of molecular biology have enabled us to peep deeper into the world of microbes leading to change in our perception about their life and functions. The book has incorporated this new knowledge in almost every chapter. Our understanding about mycorrhizae and their role in an ecosystem has increased manifold. The readers will find a complete update about them in this book. Hosts and parasites have been in perpetual conflict ever since they evolved. Understanding their interaction therefore, would be of great interest for readers. The book covers latest developments in this area also. The supplementary information presented in boxes in some of the chapters will be useful for those who are interested in the subject at an advanced level. The coloured photographs of the symptoms of various plant diseases included in this book will be highly useful for better understanding about them. The text in Hindi along with other features mentioned above makes this book distinctively different from the other books on the similar subject.
