Commerical fermentation of fungi - liquid culture

I have been asked to find out how to grow fungi in liquid culture.  My
background is a plant physiologist not a mycologist.  Are there some
standard texts that give details on commercial fermentation processes
including starting on the bench top and ending at some larger scale.  I
appreciate that each fungi will require different conditions, but there
must be a sort of list that gives examples of equipment and
environmental variables that need to be considered and a few cook book
examples of commercially important processes eg. antibiotics.

If you have any information as to general and/or specific references
that I can go find in the library or know of any sites on the WEB,
please e-mail me.
