Nanotechnology is one of the most fascinating areas of research, it is the cutting-edge technology that has a great impact on various application fields. Nanoparticles have been under consideration due to their applicability in almost every field. There are many methods used for the synthesis of nanoparticles but biological methods have proved to be superior. Among various biological sources, microorganisms have gained attention recently. Bacterial nanoparticle syntheses from terrestrial as well as from marine habitats have been frequently studied as compared to fungal counterparts. Recently, Fungal Nanotechnology has received much attention as it has a big role to play in future as well. During the last decades, marine fungi have been observed to exhibit novel nanotechnological application potentialities. This chapter deals with the history and emergence of myconanotechnology, focusing on terrestrial as well as marine fungal resources. Fungal nanoproducts have noteworthy scope in diverse fields. This chapter also discusses the scope of myconanotechnology in future.
