Since Link introduced genus Fusarium in 1809, the genus encompasses a diverse array of species of significance for being devastating plant pathogens that often produce a wide range of secondary metabolites and attracted an immense interest. The association of some of these metabolites with cellular toxicity, effects on growth and development of animals, and cancer in humans and domesticated animals is of particular interest to agriculture and food safety. The taxonomic history of Fusarium species has been reviewed in great detail elsewhere. The genus currently contains nearly less than 200 accepted species, and its economic and historical importance makes it remain at center stage in future discussions about nomenclature and mycological diversity. Therefore, together with its ubiquitous nature, these species are of great significant impacts on ecosystems, agriculture, food production, biotechnology, and human and animal health. The aim of this chapter is to give an overview of the studies aimed at the investigation of Fusarium biodiversity in a wide variety of different ecological habitats, ecological significances, and industrial applications.
