About the Author

Alison Pouliot is an ecologist and environmental photographer with a focus on fungi. She is active in Australian and international fungal conservation and her writing and images appear in both academic and popular literature. Alison's fungus forays, which she conducts across both hemispheres, attract a range of people from foragers and philosophers to rangers and traditional owners. She is also the photographer and author of The Allure of Fungi (2018). Tom May is a mycologist who has spent more than four decades getting to know Australian fungi. He has published widely on fungal taxonomy, ecology and conservation in scientific and popular literature, including checklists of Australian fungi and a key to genera of Australian mushrooms (FunKey). He is active in international mycological groups such as the Nomenclature Committee for Fungi and in community natural history organisations, founding Fungimap in 1995. He was awarded the Australian Natural History Medallion in 2014.

Reviews

"This is an invaluable reference for mushroom foragers, combining scientific and cultural knowledge with exquisite photographs to encourage a new way of looking at fungi in Australia." * Gardening Australia, April 2021 *
"A marvellous new book, a work of art." -- Robyn Williams * The Science Show, ABC Radio National *
"I know of no other book at this level which shows so many examples of the variation to be found in fungal fruitbodies. ... This is excellent as one of the hardest things for beginners to learn is just how variable and changeable fungi are in appearance. .... All in all this is a beautifully produced and very useful volume for anyone wishing to forage for fungi." -- Geoffrey Kibby * Field Mycology 22(3) *
