Readily usable keys and tables allow identification of all of the species described and a wealth of reference information broadens the scope of the book beyond identification. The book provides: - 678 species descriptions, with the results of 99 physiological tests displayed at a glance - Over 1300 high quality photomicrographs to accompany the descriptions, including 500 photomicrographs new to this edition - Nine identification keys, based on clearly defined groups of yeasts - Tables for identifying each species - A summary of the characteristics of 93 yeast genera - A list of nearly 4000 published yeast names, with provenances and synonyms - A list of specific epithets, with the genera to which they have belonged - General sections on yeast classification and laboratory methods - An extensive bibliography and a comprehensive glossary
Yeast research, which was originally concerned with improving wine-making and brewing processes, has played a major role in the development of a number of modern scientific disciplines. In the 20th century, investigations of yeasts laid the foundations for mitochondrial genetics and cell cycle research. Today, thousands of people are engaged in research on yeasts, studying their physiology, metabolism, genetics, and molecular biology and developing new applications for industry and medicine. The book describes the historical background of this important work.
This little tale was written between two and three years ago, in the hope that it might help to call the attention of wiser and better men than I am, to the questions which are now agitating the minds of the rising generation, and to the absolute necessity of solving them at once and earnestly, unless we would see the faith of our forefathers crumble away beneath the combined influence of new truths which are fancied to be incompatible with it, and new mistakes as to its real essence. That this can be done I believe and know: if I had not believed it, I would never have put pen to paper on the subject.
