Explore the heart of mushroom country

The Pacific Northwest is one of the best places to find mushrooms--they are both abundant and spectacularly diverse. Yet until now, there has been no mushroom guide that focuses on the region. This compact, beautifully illustrated guide presents descriptions and photographs of 460 of the region's mushrooms. In addition to profiles on individual species, Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest also includes a general discussion and definition of fungi, information on where to find mushrooms and guidelines on collecting them, an overview of fungus ecology, and a discussion on how to avoid mushroom poisoning.
