Identification of the Larger Fungi

Series: Plant Science Research and Practices
BISAC: SCI011000

Identification of the Larger Fungi is ecologically biased in order to emphasize a rather neglected aspect of the higher fungi. The book is arranged in three parts: the agarics are dealt with first, the non-agarics next, both with particular reference to their major habitat preferences, and lastly a catalogue of those more specialised habitats which are frequently encountered. All parts are supported at the end by lists in tabular form of those species expected to be found in any one habitat. Keys to the major groups, families and genera, are included to widen the scope of the book and place the examples chosen and illustrated in the text in their position in classification.
