Other topics include edible and poisonous fungi, conserving mushrooms and other uses of fungi. The book then covers the most common major groups, including morels, wood cauliflower, polypores, boletes, tooth fungi, chanterelles, horn of plenty, brittlegills, milkcaps, agarics, puffballs and jelly fungi.

If you are thinking of venturing into the world of eating wild fungi then you could not pick a more informative and well illustrated guide."---Geoffrey Kibby, Field Mycology "Well laid out from start to finish and is a very easy read. Every page has excellent full colour illustrations to complement an informative text. It has the potential to become the forager's handbook - the only one you might ever need."---David M.
