Review

'What a great book. It adds a needed publication for the amateur's library which goes beyond other field guides. The illustrations of crust fungi are excellent and it is a pleasure to see them receive their rightful place in a fungal manual. I am sure you will stimulate many to look at the lower Basidiomycetes in a different light and overcome that fear of looking for and at them. Great stuff! [...] A book which should be in lots of naturalists' hands, not just field mycologists. I would gladly recommend [it] to anyone attending my forays and to my apprentices.' Prof Roy Watling MBE, DSc., FRSE [Former Head of Mycology and Plant Pathology and sometime Acting Regius Keeper at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh] 'There are some great images here to delight us [...] this book will bring hundreds of new, rare or unusual species to the attention of the general reader, with the added bonus of their up-to-date names.' Field Mycology journal (British Mycological Society) Praise for Stefan Buczacki's previous titles: 'An excellent book which is likely to remain the standard work' The Garden 'By far the most comprehensive and authoritative of its kind' Financial Times 'Seminal' The Sunday Times
