Bracket Fungi

Postby Mike Karpaty » Sun Jan 12, 2014 7:06 pm

I hope to specialise in bracket and tree fungi for my local group ( Pembrokeshire Fungi Recording Network ) and have purchased Fungi on Trees by Guy Watson and Ted Green. I am thinking of buying Manual of Wood Decays in Trees by K. Weber and C. Mattheck. Has anyone got these books and can anyone recommend any others. There seems to be a deficiency of these types of books.Thanks.

There is this one:

Fungi Europaei, Volume 10: Polyporaceae, by Annarosa Bernicchia.
Published by Edizione Candusso, ISBN 88-901057-5-5.
In Italian with some English descriptions.

Obviously it does not cover bracket fungi per se, and non poroid bracket fungi are excluded. And it costs a mere £100 odd.

Hi Mike,

I understand that Kew/BMs are publishing a book on Crusts and Brackets shortly but not sure when. Good luck with these - difficult for me in Glamorgan!
