Publisher Comments:

Authoritative text, crystal-clear photography, and a readily accessible structure make this an indispensable pocket guide to mushrooms of the world. Packed with more than 2,300 full-color photographs and illustrations of over 500 mushrooms, the Dorling Kindersley Handbook of Mushrooms is a concise guide to identification, enabling you to recognize each species quickly and easily. Photo-Encyclopedic Approach: Expertly written and thoroughly vetted, each entry combines a precise description with annotated photographs to highlight each mushroom's chief characteristics and distinguishing features. Meticulously drawn artworks depict each species in its natural environment, while quick-reference, color-coded bands provide useful at-a-glance facts, such as fruiting season, size, edibility, and spore deposit color. Identification Made Easy: By organizing all the mushrooms by shape, with major categories further subdivided by characteristics such as gill arrangement or flesh type, field identification is made as simple as possible. A thorough introduction explains in more detail what mushrooms are and how they grow, and gives practical advice on how to use microscopic features to assist in species recognition. A concise glossary explains all scientific and technical terms used in the book.
