In spite of the fact that fungi were the first micro-organisms to be definitely connected with human diseases, too little exact knowledge concerning the classification and activities of the yeasts, molds and actinomycetes is available to the microbiologist. During the past few years there has been an awakened interest, particularly in the relation of molds to human infections. Henrici's book is timely. While being relatively brief, the material presented is quite adequate for the needs of the laboratory worker. The most interesting chapters are those on the dermatophytes and the oidia and monilia. The illustrations throughout the book are excellent.
