Australia is world-renowned for its often extraordinary and unique natural environment – including many of its plants and animals. This beautiful little book highlights an often overlooked, but just as remarkable, aspect of our natural world: Australia’s fungi. Many are brightly coloured, some fluorescent; some are elegant, others squat; some are fragrant, more still are highly toxic. This field guide showcases many of these species in all their splendour. With descriptions of more than 170 species, this is the most comprehensive general guide to Australia's Fungi. It includes species from all over Australia. It is superbly illustrated with 23 beautiful watercolours, 36 colour photos and more than 260 line drawings. Picture-based keys allow for easy identification. Known toxic species are clearly labelled. It includes lots of interesting facts about fungi - from an explanation of the formation of fairy rings to notes on scientific collecting and preserving.
