About this book

Language: English

The second edition of Poroid Fungi of Europe follows the style and format of the previous edition (which was volume 31 in the series Synopsis Fungorum) , and now contains 255 colour photos (vs. 210 in the first edition). Many of these are new, and the overall quality of reproduction has improved. In addition there are 117 black and white drawings.

The generic concepts are conservative as before, since the book primarily is meant to be a manual for naming specimens. Never the less several new genera to the European mycota have been added, such as Amylosporus and Wolfiporia besides Favolaschia with F. calocera, a poroid “Mycena” which now is spreading rapidly in Europe.

The authors have added several new tables with spore drawings from genera like Antrodia, Antrodiella, Ceriporia, Junghuhnia, Oligoporus, and Skeletocutis, making it easier to determinate species in these genera. Some recently changed species concepts in genera like Antrodia have been incorporated. Generic names have been added to the upper page corners, making finding specific genera quicker.
