Threats to fungi and fungal diversity throughout the world have prompted debates about whether and how fungi can be conserved. Should it be the site, or the habitat, or the host that is conserved? All of these issues are addressed in this volume, but coverage goes beyond mere debate with constructive guidance for management of nature in ways beneficial to fungi. Different parts of the world experience different problems and a range of examples are presented; from Finland in the North to Kenya in the South, and from Washington State, USA in the West to Fujian Province, China in the East. Equally wide-ranging solutions, are put forward, from voluntary agreements, through land management techniques, to primary legislation. Taken together, these provide useful suggestions about how fungi can be included in conservation projects in a range of circumstances.

'If you are active in, or wish to become active in, fungal conservation this is a book to be seen and pondered.' Mycotaxon '... unique and recommended for all interested in fungal conservation.' Persoonia '... well written, nicely designed and clearly printed ... a landmark in the field of fungal conservation and should be on the shelves of all those actively engaged in species and habitat protection ... should be in every library used by planners, ecologists and mycologists.' The British Mycological Society ' ... a useful reference ... it provides a variety of conservation models and strategies to choose from.' Micropathologia
