About this book

Language: English

This manual gives Information on some 114 species of Polyporaceae based on materials mainly collected by the authors during 1954-1993 from various parts of India, The authors also studied extensively the materials accumulated in other herbaria of Indian botanical establishments, particularly of the Botany Department, Presidency College, Calcutta, which maintains the voluminous collections of Polyporaceae of Dr S.R. Bose, and also of the Mycological Herbarium of the F.R.I., Dehra Dun. Besides, the authors studied collections authenticated from specialists on Polyporaceae.

The genera and the species have been arranged alphabetically. Although taxonomic positions of the species have been determined utilising knowledge from different fields of study mentioned above, the key for generic and specific identifications has been based on basidiocarp characters only as it will be useful to everybody working with these fungi.
