Volume 1 of Corticoid Fungi of Europe is the first of three volumes. The book includes an introduction, key to genera, and descriptions of genera (and species) from A to G. Almost all species are illustrated with black and white drawings of microscopical characters. Some 50 species with conspicuous and/or coloured basidiocarps are also illustrated with colour pictures. The mycological scope is wide, including all European wood-inhabiting Homobasidiomycetes exclusive of Polyporaceae and Agaricaceae (in a wide sense) and totally some 850 species will be described and illustrated in the end.
Two more volumes are planned to be published in 2022. Volume 2 will include descriptions for genera from H-P, while volume 3 will include the final descriptions of genera from R-W besides a list of references and an index.
