Over 240 British and European species are described and illustrated in this pocket-sized introductory guide
Fungi are present in all habitats everywhere on earth, and are of enormous biological and ecological importance. However, with over 1.5 million species of fungi identified, only five per cent of them have ever been described. This book aims to provide a colourful introduction to the mushrooms, toadstools and other kinds of large fungi that occur in Britain and northern Europe.
• Detailed description and identification fact file for each entry, enabling faster and more accurate identification
• Calendar chart shows which months you can expect to see that species
• There are details of size and differences in appearance to other, similar looking fungi, and the habitat in which you are most likely to come across them.
Each page is devoted to a different species and is complemented with a colour photograph which displays vital details of both the stem and cap. Every entry is also illustrated with two symbols, showing edibility and the practical grouping to which each fungus belongs. Wild Guide Mushroom and Toadstools is the perfect starting point for those who want to identify and discover more about these fascinating species.
