More Information:
The Pacific Northwest is one of the best places to find mushrooms -- they are both abundant & spectacularly diverse. Yet until now, there has been no mushroom guide that focuses on the region.

This compact, beautifully illustrated guide presents descriptions & photographs of 460 of the region's most conspicuous, distinctive, & ecologically important mushrooms. The geographic range covered by the book includes Oregon, Washington, southern British Columbia, Idaho, & westernmost Montana, with an emphasis on the heart of mushroom country: the low- to mid-elevation forest habitats of western Oregon & Washington. In addition to profiles on individual species, Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest also includes a general discussion & definition of fungi; information on where to find mushrooms & guidelines on collecting them; an overview of fungus ecology; & a discussion on mushroom poisoning & how to avoid it.
