Most researchers and educators in mycosis--diseases caused by fungus--are specialists in either plants or animals. The purpose of this collection of essays is to explore the similarities and differences in the two kinds of hosts through the four stages of fungal infection, to aid understanding of the mechanisms underlying both, and to introduce pathologists to approaches of study used in different disciplines. The sections cover spore attachment and invasion, fungal spore products and pathogenesis, host response to early fungal invasion, and molecular aspects of disease initiation.
