The book entitled `Mycological study and Scientific Conservation of Historical
Monuments' is the outcome of my research work of various historical monuments situated in
different states of India. The main subject of this work is to study the micro fungi
community on monuments by using culture growth and microscopic observations in order to
evaluate the potential damage caused by fungal species and then undertake chemical
conservation as well as eco-friendly conservation by extract of medicinal plants. This
book focused about the scientific investigations on the subject of bio-deterioration of
cultural heritage through discussions on the extent of the problem, available preventive
and remedial treatments, and current research based on isolation and identification of
fungal flora on the monuments and their conservation by chemically as well as natural
herbal product like medicinal plant extract of various plants. Preservation of this
material from fungal deterioration by using safe or eco-friendly fungicide was the prime
goal in this work.
