This comprehensive guide is designed for easy identification of all mushrooms, both common and important, in Britain and Europe. Describing the characteristic features of the mushroom in detail, it works on the basis that the reader has no formal botanical qualifications. Colour photographs show specimens both close up and at different stages of growth, enabling the reader to identify different species with ease. Other titles in the same series by Roger Phillips include "Garden and Field Weeds", "Native and Common Trees" and "Seashells and Seaweeds". He has won the Andrew Simon Prize for "Wild Food".
