About this book

There is huge and growing interest in the fascinating world of fungi. A Field Guide to Mushrooms of Britain and Europe is aimed specifically towards the many beginners to the subject of mushrooms, although it is also suitable for those with a little more knowledge. With this in mind, the text has been written in an easy to understand style – with daunting technical terms kept to a minimum – in order to help those who have some curiosity about mushrooms, and wish to learn more about their characteristics, when to find them, and in what sort of habitat they can be found.

A Field Guide to Mushrooms of Britain and Europe covers more than 100 species and includes over 200 large colour images showing clear, close-up detail. The accompanying text for each species describes key characteristics of size, colour, texture, habitat and season. The focus is on the more common species of mushrooms which are most likely to be encountered by beginners, although there is also a small selection of more unusual and rare varieties. The introduction includes simple illustrations showing a selection of different caps, stems, gills, pores and rings, while there is also a straightforward glossary.

This is the perfect field guide for people who are starting to learn about the subject of mushrooms.
