A Manual of the Aspergilli


THE publication, in 1926, of the monograph “The Aspergilli” by Thorn and Church was a landmark in the taxonomic study of this important genus of moulds. The fact that a re-working of the genus after twenty years has necessitated no fundamental change in classification is the best evidence of the sound scholarship which went to the writing of the monograph. Nevertheless, its very excellence gave other workers confidence, not only in identifying Aspergilli, but also in describing new species, with the result that a fair amount of new material has accumulated during the intervening years.
