About this book

Commemorates the centenary of the British Mycological Society and considers the impact its members have had worldwide during the last 100 years. It combines various historical accounts of the contributions made to the study of fungi by British mycologists with contemporary reviews of individual subjects for which the British are noted as pioneers or world leaders.

Re-issue, originally published in 1996.
