A Field Guide to Australian Fungi is a definitive field guide covering more than 500 fungi species
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.
A Field Guide to Australian Fungi is the culmination of many decades of field work and study and is the most comprehensive photographic field guide on Australian fungi yet published.
“A Field Guide to Australian Fungi” is an excellent book for amateurs who are developing an interest in these fascinating organisms. Its beautiful presentation should encourage younger – as well as anybody – to take up their study as it is an excellent layman’s guide. Barry Jahnke, Australian Plants Online, 2005
