Featuring 1,000 species of higher fungi found in the British Isles and northern Europe, from the most common to the rarest and including some never hitherto published photographically, this is the most comprehensive photographic handbook for the dedicated mycologist, general naturalist or mushroom hunter collecting for the cooking pot. To ensure that the fruiting bodies are shown in their true colours and forms, the superb colour photographs in this encyclopedia have been taken live and in situ in natural light, making it the most thorough and realistic photographic field guide available. Each species is seen as it will be found in the wild, in its typical habitat and on its natural substrate. Detailed mycological descriptions, including essential microscopic characteristics, are given to ensure accurate verification.
