Book Description

From grassland fairy circles to alpine nano-shrooms, the Rocky Mountain region invites mushroom hunters to range though a mycological nirvana. Accessible and scientifically up-to-date, The Essential Guide to Rocky Mountain Mushrooms by Habitat is the definitive reference for uncovering post-rain rarities and kitchen favorites alike. Dazzling full-color photos highlight the beauty of hundreds of species. Easy-to-navigate entries offer essential descriptions and tips for identifying mushrooms, including each species’ edibility, odor, taste, and rumored medicinal properties. The authors organize the mushrooms according to habitat zone. This ecology-centered approach places each species among surrounding flora and fauna and provides a trove of fascinating insights on how these charismatic fungi interact with the greater living world.

Cathy Cripps is a mycologist and associate professor in the Department of Plant Sciences and Plant Pathology at Montana State University, where she teaches and does research on fungi. She is the editor of Fungi in Forest Ecosystems: Systematics, Diversity, and Ecology. Vera Evenson is curator of the Sam Mitchel Herbarium of Fungi at the Denver Botanical Gardens. She is the author of Mushrooms of Colorado and the Southern Rocky Mountains and past president of the Colorado Mycological Society.
