It's a good book for fungi identification 25 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have had very satisfactory experiences in the use of this book as a guide for the identification of Food Fungi, even though outside written for Fungi of Medical Importance. It displays a very particular approach that makes extremely didactic, mainly for the novices in the subject or that they do not make fungi identification of routine. It presents first a classification of the fungi based on the color of the colony and the characteristic formation of conidias of the fungi genera. In one second part of the book it makes a more detailed description of each one of the considered generas. And finally it makes an review of the main medias used in the isolation and identification of fungi.

Fungal ID 25 Nov. 2001
By Gary Smith - Published on
Format: Paperback
It is a well written, and illustrated book for the idenfication of fungi, however, the inclusion of plates for appearance on media and more direct photos would improve the publication (and no doubt increase the cost) otherwise it is a good book for the identication of fungi in the laboratory that processes some fungi, as an offshoot to the microbiology department, a mycology department would include this in its library but would include other texts, and resources. In summary good at uni good on the bench, but would need suplementation in a pure mycology department.

Great images and descriptions 3 Jan. 2014

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Very useful when studying mycology, especially in a lab setting. Great for reference when identifying fungi on a plate. Features drawings and actual images of most fungi. Very descriptive cornmeal morphologies, and accurate descriptions of front and reverse color.

I was really impressed by the textbook. It is layed out in a clean and logical manner, the illustrations really make defining characteristics clear, and it's interesting reading. I'm a practicing blood banker but this book I'm keeping!
