About this book

The book features all edible species of mushroom, together with those with which they may be confused. Organised by habitat for easy reference, it is beautifully illustrated and includes the best ways to cook and eat the mushrooms you collect.

Main species are illustrated in their relevant habitat, and key features are described in detail. `Lookalikes' are shown alongside the main species, and additional illustrations indicate how they differ.

Calendar bars indicate at what time of year you can expect to see each mushroom along with an annotated cross-section giving accurate measurements to make identification easier.

First published 1996, this edition reissued in 2007.
