For the first time, a definitive field guide covering more than 500 fungi species with 548 superb colour photographs. All fungi photographed in their natural environment - many for the first time with information on fungal biology, ecology, classification, distribution, roles of fungi in nature, and spore prints.

Descriptions cover size, range, shape, habitat information as well as spore print colour, spore descriptions and a pictorial guide to groups. The book is a culmination of many decades of field work and study and is the most comprehensive photographic field guide on Australian fungi yet published.

This is the definitive reference book - in an area where expertise is thin on the ground. Lovely photos

Hoped that the book would advise eatibles and non eatables. Did this to a few.

I wouldn't buy this product. Not what I expected

The cover of this book is different to the picture. And there is not written which mushrooms are toxic and not toxic, which you can eat and not.

I HAVE OTHER BOOKS ON fUNGI BUT THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST

I have been turning a Lychee farm back to Rainforest for 23 years and find that this is so useful in identifying the useful fungi now appearing.

A must have for fungi photographers

5

This must have resource provides an absolute one stop reference to identify fungi species during and after photographing. Fungi is an excellent specimen to photograph and this book provides the corresponding identification superbly. Stop looking elsewhere - your wait is over.
