The vital role of fungi in the ecology of grasslands is becoming more widely appreciated, sparking an increasing interest in identification. Compiled from surveys in the Lower Wye Valley, this ﬁeld guide covers the species that are commonly found in meadows and other grasslands throughout the UK including the colourful waxcaps and many other fascinating species.
- More than 170 species with clear descriptions of each, and over 800 photographs.
- Key indentiﬁcation points to help distinguish between similar species.
- Designed to be suitable for the beginner and amateur enthusiast, it will appeal to anyone with an interest in grassland mycology.
"[...] This book pulls together experience gained in the still plentiful natural grasslands of the lower Wye Valley. It describes and illustrates most of the species that are identifable in the feld: some 170 species in all. It is clear, not too technical, and very well illustrated with colour images. It will be a boon to any feld worker. The question is this: will it be as useful nationally as it is for the Wye Valley? The answer, perhaps surprisingly, is probably yes. [...] This is a well-produced and much-needed guide to grassland fungi that should be useful to beginners as well as to more experienced feld mycologists. And it should encourage others to become involved in feld survey, or just spotting fungi for fun, which is all to the good."
– Peter Marren, British Wildlife, Volume 29(2)
