Edible mushrooms

by Geoff Dann | 20 October 2016
Category: Science Academic
An up-to-date, comprehensive and brilliantly illustrated book on fungi foraging in Britain and Europe. It covers every known edible species, and all the poisonous groups, as well as a few very common species and a handful of mushrooms included for their interesting or unusual characteristics. Identify edible and poisonous mushrooms. Distinguish between 'lookalike' species. Know when is the best time and place to hunt for each species. Identify edible species which should be left alone because they are threatened Photos show each species in its natural habitat, to aid identification. Perfect for all ability levels - from absolute beginner to the experienced fungi forager who'd like to become an expert. Each edible species is ranked according to its difficulty/danger level, so beginners can start with the easiest ones, while experienced foragers can learn how to safely forage for the trickier species that other mushroom foraging guides leave out. A fascinating, wise companion on the journey into the delicious, world of fungi. Come Autumn, it will accompany every foray I make into the woods, and my life, and my frying pan, will be vastly richer because of it. - Rob Hopkins, founder of the Transition movement. Bursting with quality photos and great information, this book is a must for foragers. Put it in your rucksack, and let it guide you on safe, fun fungal adventures. - Fergus Drennan aka Fergus The Forager
