The latest in this popular series focusing on the species of GRASSLAND FUNGI found in the three counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.
The grasslands (and heathlands) of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire are home to a dazzling array of fungi. Many of them, waxcaps in particular, are as colourful as any wild flower. Trying to identify them all can be daunting, but this Guide helps to simplify the task. It concentrates on those which are most likely to be found in the area (over 100 species), and describes their most distinctive features- size, shape, colour, texture and even smell- that lead to a determination.
Each species is beautifully photographed, while the succinct text notes provide key characteristics and information.
The opening section gives a brief account of sites in each county where the fungi mentioned in this Guide can be found.
