The Fungi-Animal Interactions specialty section of the journal Frontiers in Fungal Biology publishes high-quality peer reviewed basic and applied research relating to fungi and their interactions with animals. The diverse world of fungi consist of species that are either beneficial or pathogenic towards both vertebrate and invertebrate animals ranging from mammals, amphibians, fish, insects to nematodes.
Areas covered by this section include, but are not limited to:
· Cell differentiation and development
· Host range
· Symbiotic interactions
· Animal immune responses
· Chemical biology
· Population genetics
Elucidating the nature and mechanisms of the relationships between fungi and animals represents not only a step forward in understanding of the world around us, but a unique opportunity to harness them as solutions to medical and agricultural challenges.
Basic research on human pathogenic fungi can be considered in this section although clinical studies should be submitted to the ‘Fungal Pathogenesis’ specialty section in our sister journal Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology.Research focused on animal pathogenic oomycetes are welcome. Research purely relating to fungal secondary metabolites or physiological responses against abiotic factors do not fall within the scope of this section and should be submitted to the appropriate specialty section in Frontiers in Fungal Biology
