Yeasts are important players in many ecosystems and make a significant contribution to the biodiversity of nature. This biodiversity has given species that have significant practical and commercial importance. Traditional concerns have focused on their roles as spoilage organisms, agents of desirable fermentations and on their medical significance. Recent interests include their potential use as biocontrol agents and probiotic species, and more intensive screening for biocatalytic activities that may have commercial benefit.
