Peter Marren, British Wildlife "Not only for people in Europe is this the best guidebook to get, it also is extremely useful for people in other parts of the world. The fungal kingdom; fungal nutrition; Fungal biogeography and habitats; Asexual propagation; Fruitbodies; Microscopy; Tastes and smells; Working with fruitbodies; General identification wheels; Chanterelles and the like.

Including agarics, boletes, chanterelles and morels but also more obscure groups such as cyphelloids, cup fungi, pyrenomycetous fungi and hysterioids, this guide takes an unprecedented broad approach at communicating fungal diversity. The text, including the usual introductory section on fungal lives and identification, is, allowing for its international flavour, excellent. All species are illustrated with one or more photographs and information is given on morphology, ecology and distribution within temperate Europe.

You get used to the faintly odd language, some of which is not in the glossary: for example, ‘meteoric’ (meaning, I think, appearing in sudden spasms at long intervals), ‘sordid’ (dirty-looking), ‘speciose’ (a genus with lots of species in it), ‘turgid’ (fresh and swollen with fluid).The authors are both English-speaking Danes, and Laessoe, at least, has worked in Britain and knows British fungi. It also means that many old dogmas stand to fall with regard to the nature of fungal biology and classification.
