Collins Wild Guide to Mushrooms and Toadstools of Britain and Europe
This illustrated guide to mushrooms and toadstools enables quick and
easy identification of 240 species found in Britain and Europe. The text
includes information about distribution, habitat, season, size, stem and
gills, whether it is poisonous or edible and any associated folklore.
This guide has been my greatest help in
identifying mushrooms. It has a section guiding the mushroom enthusiast to
understanding all there is to understand about mushrooms, followed by 1751
excellent colour illustrations (coloured drawings). The descriptions are short but
concise, focused on the most important characteristics of each fungus. Though
the guide covers only a part of the fungal world - it would take a multi-volume
encyclopaedia of fungi to cover most of it - I consider it a great work that
should find its way to every mushroom fan's bookshelf.
