A total of 550 species are meticulously illustrated and dealt with in the text. With accurate scientific information and superb illustrations, this book appeals to readers who are scientifically or artistically inclined.

The classification overview and keys to color illustrations simplify identification. Each species description includes thorough information on habitat, distribution, identifying characteristics, edibility and the poisonous look-alike species

Written in everyday language, Mushrooms of Western Canada is an accessible reference for both the professional mycologist and the amateur naturalist.
