This is the most comprehensive and authoritative book ever published on the subject and is useful in all of Canada and the northern United States. The book was designed to help mycologists, medical practitioners, general biologists, and mushroom foragers identify quickly and accurately the larger poisonous fungi found in northern North America. The book is divided in to two parts: Part 1: The Fungus Fruit Body (which provides a thorough introduction to fungal structure and taxonomy); and Part 2: Fungal Poisoning (which deals with toxicity and the major categories of fungal poisoning).
