In an era when the emergence of antifungal-resistant pathogens is challenging the understanding of fungal infections in animals, it has become increasingly urgent to uncover the mechanisms that enable opportunistic and pathogenic fungi to cause disease in domestic animals, wildlife, and, in some cases, humans. From yeasts to molds, this Special Issue on “Fungal infections in Animals” aims to collect leading research regarding the epidemiology, host–fungi interactions, fungal pathogenicity, and the development of therapeutic and preventive measures against fungal diseases in animals.
Studies related to the microbiota balance inside the animal host have confirmed the role of microorganism communities in the behavior, immunity, and genetics of the host. This Special Issue also welcomes information regarding the interaction between fungal agents and the animal host microbiota, the ability of microbial communities to behave as antifungal agents, but also the dynamics between fungal and bacterial microbiota on different body surfaces.
This Special Issue also aims to include studies pertaining to the population-level consequences of fungal infections threatening wildlife and food security, all of them being different aspects of “Fungal infections in Animals”.
