"Mushrooms Of The Southeastern United States" is the combined and collaborative effort of four outstanding mycologists: Alan E. Bessette (Professor of biology, Utica College, Syracuse University); William C. Roody (Field Biologist, Wildlife Diversity Program, West Virginia Division of Natural Resources); Arleen R. Bessette (Botanical Photographer); and Dail L. Dunaway (Botanical Photographer and expert in the mushroom flora of the southeastern United States). Enhanced with color photographic plates, "Mushrooms Of The Southeastern United States" is organized according to species descriptions ranging from Chanterelles and Allies; to Gilled Mushrooms; to Fungi; and so much more. Enhanced with the inclusion of four appendices on Microscopic Examination of Mushrooms; Chemical Reagents and Mushroom Identification; Classification; and Mycophagy; "Mushrooms Of The Southeastern United States" also includes a glossary, a bibliography of recommended readings, an index to common names, and an index to scientific names. Comprehensive, informative, superbly organized and presented, "Mushrooms Of The Southeastern United States" is a work of impeccable scholarship and very strongly recommended for personal, professional, academic, and community library reference collections and supplemental reading lists.
