About this book

Language: French

This field guide describes approximately 3000 species of mushrooms found in Europe, of which more than 1500 are illustrated by photographs, which is an absolute record among the mushrooms guides, even globally. Leafing through this guide, the reader will realize the incredible diversity of fungi. One will find such records for over 50 boletes and 160 species of Cortinarius mushrooms, almost 130 Russula and 40 Coprinus species, close to 50 Entoloma species, 40 inocybes, and 70 milk-caps. An introduction precedes the listings. The authors explain in a clear and educational way the main characters of a mushroom: anatomy, ecology, biology and classification are presented, as well as the crucial role of fungi in various ecosystems.

Several pages also describe the main types of symptoms of poisoning by mushrooms, and present the most toxic species, how to recognize them, and how to avoid confusing them with their prospective edible lookalikes.

Summary in French:
 Ce guide d'identification décrit environ 3 000 espèces, parmi lesquelles plus de 1 500 sont illustrées par des photographies, ce qui constitue un record absolu parmi les guides de champignons, même au niveau mondial ! 

En feuilletant ce guide, le lecteur se rendra compte de l'incroyable diversité des champignons. Il y trouvera par exemple des fiches pour plus de 50 bolets et 160 cortinaires, presque 130 russules 40 coprins, près de 50 entolomes, 40 inocybes et 70 lactaires... Une partie introductive précède les fiches descriptives. Les auteurs y expliquent d'une façon claire et didactique les principaux caractères des champignons : anatomie, écologie, biologie et classification y sont présentées, ainsi que le rôle crucial des champignons dans les divers écosystèmes. 

Plusieurs pages décrivent aussi les symptômes des principaux types d'intoxication par les champignons, et présentent les espèces les plus toxiques, comment les reconnaître et comment éviter de les confondre avec leurs éventuels sosies comestibles.
