Description

Fortunately, there is an index to genera on the front boards and an abbreviated glossary at the back. Revealing the world of fungi in all its splendour, Fungi of Temperate Europe is a must-have resource for any amateur or professional mycologist. Many thousands of colour photographs throughout, some colour diagrams, a very few b/w line illustrations, 14-page bibliography.

All species are illustrated with one or more photographs and information is given on morphology, ecology and distribution within temperate Europe. Steve Trudell, Mycophile "With its unprecedentedly broad taxonomic coverage, Fungi of Temperate Europe aims to provide a comprehensive overview of fungal species in Europe.By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. This is a really practical book that will be a boon to field mycologists, especially in temperate regions.

The text, including the usual introductory section on fungal lives and identification, is, allowing for its international flavour, excellent. It also means that many old dogmas stand to fall with regard to the nature of fungal biology and classification.

The books are divided into eighty 'form groups', each starting with an innovative comparison wheel with guiding photos, distinguishing characteristics and drawings of essential microscopic features. But the greatest strength of Fungi of Temperate Europe lies in its illustrations, which, I repeat, are simply glorious. For temperate Europe we estimate that the total number of species is higher than 20,000 and the number of fruitbody-forming fungi is at least 6,000 - 9,000 (including about 2,000 species of lichens). Hence it includes many Continental species that have not been found in Britain, though fewer than you might suppose, for fungi tend to be more widely distributed than plants. the greatest strength of Fungi of Temperate Europe lies in its illustrations, which, I repeat, are simply glorious.
