The Fifth Kingdom is a basic text in mycology. It surveys the world of mycology through classification, physiology and genetics, and discusses applications of mycology in the modern world, from brewing and baking to health and disease.

This new edition has been updated to reflect the most recent developments in mycology, including the field's adoption of a new taxonomical framework for fungi as a whole, and the latest advances in molecular genetics.
