Críticas:

The photographs are excellent.... It all makes one want to get to the nearest woodland to hasten the learning experience.--Diane M. Calabrese"American Reference Books Annual 2010" (03/01/2011)

Gills, central stem, spore color, tubes, and pores are characteristics that allow the amateur to make a respectable attempt at identifying mushrooms and other fungi. Yes, there are some delicious edible mushrooms, but no amateur should ever eat a mushroom on the basis of his own identification; an expert determination is the only path to safe eating. Yet this is a perfect volume for the admirer of the Mycena species.... Each succinct description provides notes on range, seasonality, defining characters and size. The photographs are excellent.... Throughout, one picks up interesting tidbits, such as the passion that drives British mycologists to conduct their conferences in Latin. Then there are the surprises with every turn of the page, such as the captivating deep blue of the bruised, older Gyroporus cyanescens. It all makes one want to get to the nearest woodland to hasten the learning experience.--Diane M. Calabrese"American Reference Books Annual 2010" (03/01/2011)

[Review of hardcover edition: ] Well organized, it is an outstanding introduction to the field of mycology... many valuable tips for collectors.--Marilyn K. Alaimo"Chicago Botanic Gardens Current Books on Gardening" (05/26/2006)

[Review of hardcover edition: ] Photos, along with concisely detailed text, make identification of the varieties at least plausible... can also be used as a preliminary reference for the novice mycologist.--John Bagnasco"Garden Compass" (03/01/2006)

[Review of hardcover edition: ] Thoroughly engaging and visually appealing... a useful and lovely addition to any nature library.--Jodi Delong"Halifax Chronicle Herald" (12/04/2005)

[Review of hardcover edition: ] [A] comprehensive guidebook.--Jolene Ketzenberger"Indianapolis Star" (04/11/2005)

[Review of hardcover edition: ] In a field well populated by various types of guides, Phillip's book is little short of incredible.... incomparable for identification... If you have even the slightest interest in identifying North American mushrooms, this is -- quite simply -- the book on the topic, bar none.--Linda L. Richards"January Magazine" (01/01/2006)

Reseña del editor:

Praise for the hardcover edition:

"The quality of the photographs, along with the detailed descriptions, makes the volume an excellent identification guide."
-- American Reference Books Annual

"If you have even the slightest interest in identifying North American mushrooms, this is -- quite simply -- the book on the topic, bar none."
-- January Magazine

For amateur collectors or professional mycologists working in the field, this guidebook is quite simply the best North American mushroom reference ever published. Each of the 1,000 specimens is shown in full color on a neutral background to eliminate distractions, and specimens are arranged to show the cap, stem, gills, spines and a cross section, usually in various stages of growth.

Roger Phillips identifies all regional varieties of Basidiomycetes, which include chanterelles, puffballs and fungi, and Ascomycetes, which include morels and cup fungi. Detailed descriptive information on each mushroom variety includes:

  • Dimensions of cap, gills and stem
  • Color and texture of flesh
  • Odor and taste
  • Habitat and growing season
  • Distribution and appearance of spores
  • Edibility and poison warnings

There is also helpful advice on collecting specimens plus an illustrated beginner identification key and a generic key for the more advanced collector.

Mushrooms and Other Fungi of North America is at once the ideal introduction to mycology and an essential reference for the experienced collector -- the definitive book in its category.
