About this book

Originally published in 1922, British Basidiomycetae contains a description of the fungi native to Great Britain that reproduce through the dispersal of basidiospores from specialised end cells. Rea catalogues the colour, appearance, taste, typical growth season and rarity of over 2500 basidiomycetae with an eye for detail that ensured that British Basidiomycetae became the standard reference text for years after its publication. This text will be of value to anyone with an interest in mycology or the history of science.
