Here is the definitive guide to the highly varied mycoflora of Cape Cod and the National Seashore. It it written in easyt-to-follow, nontechnical language and contains accurate and up-to-date descriptions and over 150 color illustrations that help the reader identify over 250 indigenous mushroom species. The scope of this work goes well beyond the identification of mushrooms. The authors provide information that increases the reader's awareness of the fragile nature of Cape Cod's various ecosystems and the critical role that mushrooms play in helping to preserve them.
