Following the success of the first edition of Grassland Fungi: A Field Guide, published in 2017, the author Elsa Wood and editor Jon Dunkelman have continued to survey grasslands in the Wye Valley and Monmouthshire, photographing and recording their finds. This new edition includes the results of that extra research, with 23 new species and many new and improved photographs to help identification.
The vital role of fungi in the ecology of grasslands is becoming more widely appreciated, sparking an increasing interest in identification.This ﬁeld guide covers the species that are commonly found in meadows and other grasslands throughout the UK including the colourful waxcaps and many other fascinating species.
This new edition now has descriptions of 200 species of fungi, with over 900 photographs, selected to illustrate the key identification points. There is an overview of the process of identifying fungi in the field, and while technical terms are kept to a minimum, those used are explained in the glossary.
Designed to be suitable for the beginner and the more experienced, it will appeal to anyone with an interest in grassland mycology.
