The 2005 first edition was the first major, definitive field guide covering more than 500 fungi species with 548 superb colour photographs. All fungi are photographed in their natural environment – many for the first time with information on fungal biology, ecology, classification, distribution, roles of fungi in nature, and spore prints.
Descriptions cover size, range, shape, habitat information as well as spore print colour, spore descriptions and a pictorial guide to groups.
A revised version in 2009 contained many revisions and now this 2016 version includes a major review of nomenclature which resulted in nearly 100 further name changes and new species. The book now includes all these changes plus a Schedule of Recent Name Changes for ease of referral.
A Field Guide to Australian Fungi is the culmination of a lifetime of field work and study and the most comprehensive photographic field guide on Australian fungi yet published.
