Formatted abstract
Veterinary mycology is often a neglected field in veterinary medicine with many veterinarians treating infections empirically, or failing to send samples to diagnostic laboratories for identification. Few researchers undertake projects in this field. However, between 1968 and 1992 there was a major veterinary mycology laboratory in Australia. This laboratory was established at the Animal Research Institute, Yeerongpilly by Michael Desmond Connole known to friends and colleagues as “Des”. Des was actively engaged in research, training, diagnosis and control of veterinary mycoses in Australia for nearly 50 years. He is an international figure in the field of mycoses and has over 45 publications including: “A review of animal mycosis in Australia”, which was published in Mycopathologia in 1990. Des specialised in the isolation of fungi including dermatophytes, zygomycetes, pathogenic hyphomycetes and mycotoxin producers. This article honours Des’s contribution to veterinary mycology in Australia and internationally
