Fungi of Britain and Europe Sefan Buczacki

Hi

A Collins new generation guide General Editor David Attenborough.

A useful addition to any book shelf with a section on collection, study and identification of fungi including chemical, macroscopic and microscopic topics covered.

The book then runs through field keys and interestingly gives the most common characteristics of a species first to aid identification ending in spore ornamentation of russula and Lactarius drawings.

Covering 1.350 species priced at 12.95 GBP.

Regards

Hi Ian

I'm a bit confused with the title you have presented because the title I have been waiting for is "Collins Fungi Guide: The Most Complete Field Guide to the Mushrooms and Toadstools of Britain and Europe" by Stefan Buczacki and Christopher Shields, now delayed until March 2012.

Have you got this books? It seems odd that Collins would publish two books so similar.

Hello Chris

The ISBN No on the book I have is 0 00 219449 X and is titled as my previous post, Christopher Shields is not one of the people mentioned in the book I have.

Sorry Ian, I got the impression you were referring to a forthcoming book by the same author. I have this 1989 edition which is excellent although I find the size of print a bit tiring these days.
The new edition, referred to above, should be a worthy successor, due out in early 2012.

Chris


That date is apparently for the paperback edition. I received my hardback copy today. First glance suggests it was well worth waiting for.
