Details

A pair of matching overcoat-pocket sized field guides containing numerous excellent identification paintings of Northern European fungi. Volume 1 deals with the larger species of fungi, and Volume 2 with the gill fungi. These guides describe the fungi, "their structure, development and typical environment. The text contains an indication of taste and smell, and clear symbols are provided to denote whether a species is edible of poisonous." Chapters include: Volume 1: What is a fungus?; The structure and development of fungi; Various types of fungi; Fungi in the wild; Harmful fungi; Useful fungi; Poisonous fungi; Description of species. Volume 2: The agarics; Edible fungi and muschroom-picking; Naming and identification; Description of species. Both volumes give indexes of both common English names and Latin names. A useful pair of volumes which are best considered in conjunction with one another.
