A classic work and the first to comprehensively study this interesting life form, which has an important role in decomposing plant material. Myxomycetes (slime moulds) were once considered a special group of fungi. However they are now grouped within Amoebozoa as unicellular protists that adopt a multicellular aggregate form in certain conditions.

Introductory chapters cover life-history, structure, ecology, distribution, how to find and collect material, bark culture techniques, microscopic examination, and herbarium storage of “slime-moulds”. The detailed accounts cover identification, keys, descriptions and illustrations. They also include notes on differences from other similar species.

This second edition of Myxomycetes of Britain and Ireland includes a 20-page supplement with 54 colour photos.
