This field guide introduces 650 mushrooms found in the Carolinas--more than 50 of them appearing in a field guide for the first time--using clear language and color photographs to reveal their unique features.

Whats included:
Hundreds of full color photographs of Carolina mushrooms
Information on mushroom edibility and toxicity
Microscopic information
An overview of the Carolinas role in the history of American mycology
