Main Description

This new edition, with more than 21,000 entries, provides the most complete listing available of generic names of fungi, their families and orders, their attributes and descriptive terms. For each genus, the authority, the date of publication, status, systematic position, number of accepted species, distribution, and key references are given. Diagnoses of families and details of orders and higher categories are included for all groups of fungi. In addition, there are biographic notes, information on well-known metabolites and mycotoxins, and concise accounts of almost all pure and applied aspects of the subject (including citations of important literature).

"The Dictionary of the Fungi is surely one of the most indispensable of all mycological publications - every student of the fungi should own, or have access to, a copy of the most recent edition.", Bryce Kendrick, Mycologist, Feb 2003
