About this book

From grassland fairy circles to alpine nano-shrooms, the Rocky Mountain region invites mushroom hunters to range through a mycological nirvana.

Dazzling full-color photos highlight the beauty of hundreds of species. Easy-to-navigate entries offer essential descriptions and tips for identifying mushrooms, including each species' edibility, odor, taste, and rumored medicinal properties. The authors organize the mushrooms according to habitat zone. This ecology-centered approach places each species among surrounding flora and fauna and provides a trove of fascinating insights on how these charismatic fungi interact with the greater living world.

Accessible and scientifically up-to-date, The Essential Guide to Rocky Mountain Mushrooms by Habitat is a singular reference for exploring an iconic American wildland.
