Field Guide to NA Mushrooms

Featuring a durable vinyl binding and over 700 full-colour identification photographs organised visually by colour and shape, the National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms is the perfect companion for any mushroom hunting expedition. Each of 703 species is accompanied by a detailed physical description, information on edibility, season, habitat, range, look-alikes, alternative names, and facts on edible and poisonous species, uses, and folklore. A supplementary section on cooking and eating wild mushrooms, and illustrations identifying the parts of a mushroom, round out this essential guide.

Created by the world’s most trusted name in nature field guides, this is a complete identification reference to mushrooms, with detailed descriptions of cap, stem, flesh, and spore print, and authoritative notes on growth characteristics, habitat, and conservation status. 

With a soft but sturdy cover, this book is a must-have for field expeditions that will include mushroom hunting, foraging, or identification. This field guide is the first to be organised with a visual key; photographs are arranged with a unique thumb tab reference system to make identification quick and simple. If you are out hunting mushrooms in the forest you will want to bring this essential guide with you for quick and easy in-the-field reliable identification. More casual mushroom enthusiasts will benefit from comparing the photos of the mushroom finds of the day’s hike to photos and descriptions in the guide at the end of the day.  Either way, whether you are a budding fungi enthusiast or a raging mycophile, you won’t want to be without this guide!
