Veterinary fungal diseases have been neglected over the years, despite their spread across the world involving several classes of animals. Mycoses and mycotoxicoses are the main fungal affections found in animals.
Animal mycoses impact animal welfare as well on human health when zoonotic agents, such as dermatophytes and Sporothrix spp., are involved. In food-producing species, organisms such as aspergilli, Nosema spp., Saprolegnia spp., and Prototheca spp. can be responsible for heavy economic losses. Furthermore, several emerging pathogens (e.g., Capronia in mussels, Nannizziopsaceae in reptiles, Batrachochytrium spp. In amphibians, Geomyces destructans in Chiroptera) represent a threat and drive the decline of animal populations.
Mycotoxicoses, caused by secondary toxic fungal metabolites, can impact animal health when acute disease occurs or may accumulate in the food chain, inducing pathologic disorders in humans.
This Special Issue will be devoted to studies including all the aspects of animal fungal infections, with a particular emphasis to etiology, epidemiology, pathogenesis diagnosis, control, and treatment of diseases they can induce. Experimental studies, as well as case reports and review papers, will be welcome.

For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Fungi is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
