Media reviews

"Fungi and Lichens of the Limpopo Valley is a remarkable book. It highlights the important role that citizen scientists play in biodiversity research and conservation.  lt also shows the value of collaboration between citizen scientists and academics. The research findings of this project are presented in an informative and accessible way, and with stunning images that will intrigue, educate and inspire people who take the time to look at the smaller and less recognised components of our biodiversity."
– Prof. Michelle Hamer, SANBI &NSCF

"Fungi and Lichens of the Limpopo Valley is a totally fresh approach to how the novice or even expert, should set out in observing the various species encountered. lt is a fantastic companion guide to Wild Flowers of the Limpopo Valley, first published in 2009. This new work is compelling, informative and unique, adding new dimensions to that which has often been overlooked in the past."
– Dr Duncan MacFadyen, Oppenheimer Generations
