Description

It contains brief descriptions, up-to-date taxonomic names, and keys to identification based on innovative “fungal wheels. The books are divided into 80 “form groups” each starting with an innovative comparison wheel with guiding photos, distinguishing characteristics and drawings of essential microscopic features.

The text, including the usual introductory section on fungal lives and identification, is, allowing for its international flavour, excellent. 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). 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. 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.The second, which takes us to 1,715 pages, includes all the rest: brackets, puffballs, jelly fungi, coral fungi, hydnoids, cup fungi and truffles, with a nod at rusts and smuts, mildews, lichens and slime moulds (and, yes, the authors are well aware that the latter are not fungi). In Denmark, the number of species of fungi currently known is about 8,000, and in the UK the figure is almost double that. Some 2,500 species are described, including nearly every fungus you can identify without a microscope (and a lot that you cannot).

Many thousands of colour photographs throughout, some colour diagrams, a very few b/w line illustrations, 14-page bibliography.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.

There has been quite a run of mushroom books lately, each outdoing the last in terms of the quality of the illustrations, but this one simply takes your breath away.With the new DNA-based techniques, fungi can be detected from any medium, including wood and soil samples.
