The fourth title in the bestselling Collins Guide series, this book covers every macro species of mushroom and toadstool found in Europe—from the North Cape to the heel of Italy. Every species is illustrated in color directly opposite the species description, with visuals of young and mature fruiting bodies where necessary. Nearly 2,400 species are depicted along with detailed notes on how to correctly identify them, including details of similar, confusing species to further ensure correct identification. Penned by one of Europe's leading mycologists and illustrated by one of the world's leading natural history illustrators, this is the ultimate fungi guide for both amateur and experienced mycologists alike.

Review:

`What a great book. It adds a needed publication for the amateur's library which goes beyond other field guides. The illustrations of crust fungi are excellent and it is a pleasure to see them receive their rightful place in a fungal manual. I am sure you will stimulate many to look at the lower Basidiomycetes in a different light and overcome that fear of looking for and at them. Great stuff! [...] A book which should be in lots of naturalists' hands, not just field mycologists. I would gladly recommend [it] to anyone attending my forays and to my apprentices.' Prof Roy Watling MBE, DSc., FRSE [Former Head of Mycology and Plant Pathology and sometime Acting Regius Keeper at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh] `There are some great images here to delight us [...] this book will bring hundreds of new, rare or unusual species to the attention of the general reader, with the added bonus of their up-to-date names.' Field Mycology journal (British Mycological Society) Praise for Stefan Buczacki's previous titles: `An excellent book which is likely to remain the standard work' The Garden `By far the most comprehensive and authoritative of its kind' Financial Times `Seminal' The Sunday Times
