This book covers the fungi of the British Isles, with considerable relevance for Europe and the wider temperate world.
Nearly 2,400 species are illustrated in full colour, with detailed notes on how to correctly identify them, including details of similar, confusing species. Illustrations of young and mature fruiting bodies are included where necessary, and key features are highlighted for quick and easy reference.
Where possible, species are described and illustrated on the same page, with up-to-date authoritative text aiding identification.
This is the ultimate field guide for mushroom and toadstool lovers.
