About this book

Language: Spanish

The aim of this book is to introduce the reader to the fascinating world of mycology, i.e. mushrooms and their environment. Inside, illustrated with many photographs, are the most representative species of Valencia, Spain, their culinary, ecological, toxicological and even psychotropic properties.

This book is not intended to be a catalog of edible mushrooms because today it is relatively simple to get these products in many specialized shops. Instead it aims to help the reader to identify the most interesting species, both edible and inedible. Nor is it intended as a guide for the depredation of our forests, but to contribute to the dissemination of knowledge about our natural environment.

The book is, in short, an invitation to learn more about nature and enjoy the fantastic natural riches that the country has. We must be aware of the intangible cultural heritage we have and keep it for tomorrow's generations so they may also enjoy it.

Summary in Spanish:
El objetivo de este libro es introducir al lector en el fascinante mundo de la micología, es decir, de las setas y su entorno. En el interior figuran, ilustradas con multitud de fotografías, las especies más representativas del País Valenciano, sus propiedades culinarias, ecológicas, toxicológicas e incluso psicotrópicas.

Este volumen no pretende ser un catálogo de setas comestibles, ya que hoy por hoy es relativamente sencillo obtener estos productos en comercios especializados, sino ayudar al lector a identificar las especies más interesantes, tanto las que se pueden comer como las que no. Tampoco pretende ser una guía para la depredación de nuestros bosques, sino contribuir a la difusión del conocimiento sobre nuestro entorno natural. Solo conociéndolo podremos entenderlo, apreciarlo y amarlo.

El libro que el lector tiene en las manos es, en definitiva, una invitación a conocer más la naturaleza y a disfrutar de los fantásticos espacios naturales que tiene el país. Debemos tomar conciencia del patrimonio inmaterial y sociocultural que poseemos y conservarlo para que el día de mañana otras generaciones también puedan disfrutar de él.
