This photographic guide lists 3,000 species of the common mushroom, or champignons, as found in France and the rest of Europe. The book is lavishly illustrated with over 1400 colour photos. An introductory section precedes the species accounts and describes the ecology, biology and classification, as well as the crucial role these mushrooms play in many ecosystems. Several pages are dedicated to describing symptoms of major types of mushroom poisoning, which species are the most toxic, and how to avoid confusion with their edible look-alikes.
