About this book

First definitive field guide to Australian fungi, covering more than 500 species, via 548 colour photos. All fungi are photographed in their natural environment, and information is provided on biology, ecology, classification, distribution, roles of fungi in nature, and spore prints.

Descriptions cover size, range, shape, habitat information as well as spore print colour, spore descriptions and a pictorial guide to groups.

Altogether a great new photographic field guide.
