Description

With more species of fungi than any other region in Canada, British Columbia is a rich playground for mushroom hunters. Now there's Mushrooms of British Columbia, the newest handbook from the Royal BC Museum. It's perfect for anyone wanting to know more about BC mushrooms--whether for study, harvest, photography or appreciation.

Authors and mushroom experts Andy MacKinnon and Kem Luther bring a practical and playful approach to helping people quickly and confidently identify the mushrooms of British Columbia. Common names trump technical terminology, fungi are grouped by overall shape, and written descriptions of more than 350 common species are reinforced with carefully curated diagnostic images.

This is the go-to guidebook for anyone, amateur or expert, who loves to study, draw, photograph and eat BC mushrooms.
