About the book

The book covers the latest developments in the constantly emerging research associated with fungal endophytic microorganisms. The fungal endophytes are distinct group of organisms forming associations nearly ubiquitously throughout the plant kingdom. In view of the great availability of these microorganisms, significant attention is being paid towards their exploitation with regard to novel and beneficial effects. Thus, the biotechnological applications of fungal endophytes in the fields of discovery of high value metabolites as natural drugs, endophytic fungal derived biocatalysts and flavor in food processing industries, enhanced in planta production of bioactive compounds through regulation key genes of biosynthetic pathway, fungal endophyte assisted phytoremediation of contaminated environments, mycendophyte mediated synthesis of metallic nanoparticles and endophytic fungal biocontol agents for plant diseases are discussed in detail. This book intends to cover recent advances in fungal endophytic research in environment, medicine, agriculture and industry.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Debeuc

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
