Discover the Science and Secrets Behind the World of Mushrooms

Ali Ashby, Lynne Boddy

Once classed as plants, fungi are now recognized as a separate kingdom of more than 5 million species, from microscopic yeasts to some of the largest organisms on the planet. Illustrated with detailed and accurate drawings, this handbook explains their evolution, structure, reproduction and vital role in ecosystems, before describing the many families, genera and species, and their value as food and medicine, offering advice on identification and safe foraging.
