Description

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.
