About this book

The threat to fungal diversity throughout the world prompts debate about whether and how fungi can be conserved. Should it be the site, or the habitat, or the host that is conserved? All of these issues are considered, but Fungal Conservation: Issues and Solutions goes beyond mere debate by providing constructive guidance for management of nature in ways beneficial to fungi.

Re-issue, originally published in 2001.
