Field Guide To Mushrooms of Britain and Europe
|SIZE:||192 x 120 mm|
|INSIDE:||326 colour photographs & 30 b&w line drawings|
This new field guide to mushrooms includes the main species from all groups. It concentrates on the more sought-after edible species but also includes many inedible and poisonous ones. Each species is represented with one or more large colour photographs which face a detailed description of the species. This gives information on form, colour, spore colour, habitat, distribution and' edibility, enabling the naturalist or mushroom collector to identify each species that he or she finds.
The book has been comprehensively adapted for the English language by Dr Derek Reid, one of the foremost mycologists in the country and former mycologist at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
