Species of Cladosporium are common and widespread, and interact with humans in every phase of life, from producing allergens in the indoor environment, to causing fruit decay and plant disease, or being associated with human mycoses. Although Cladosporium is one of the largest and most heterogeneous genera of hyphomycetes, only a mere fraction of these species are known from culture, and few have been characterised based on molecular data. The present volume consists of nine research papers, and introduces 71 new combinations, 53 new species, 15 genera, and one family. Specific conditions and media are recommended to study Cladosporium and allied genera, while the genus is circumscribed, and separated from morphologically similar taxa with which it has been confused in the past. Generic issues related to the anamorph genera and associated Dothideomycete teleomorph genera (DavidiellaMycosphaerellaVenturia) are addressed, and multi-allelic data sets provided to facilitate species recognition. The volume is richly illustrated, with more than 100 colour plates, numerous line drawings, and scanning electron micrographs.
