The convenient, light-weight, pocket-sized, laminated field guide contains high quality images and brief descriptions of over 80 fungi including their ecological niches and human uses from all major fungal groups. It is based on over a dozen visits to the Amazon by both the authors. Over 20 of these mushrooms are unique to the Amazon, over 50 are found from Mexico to Argentina*, and almost as many are found in other tropical zones around the world. This booklet offers a visual way to identify the most commonly encountered mushrooms with special attention to the most stunning and best edible Amazon mushrooms.
