A guide to finding, identifying, collecting and preparing mushrooms for consumption – The Science Show

Mushrooms are different and delicious, but sometimes deadly. It is important to accurately identify fungi to reduce the risk of poisoning and damage to the environment. Wild Mushrooming – A guide to the Foragers by Alison Pouliot and Tom May provides information on locating some edible species, despite many superficial ones. The book combines scientific and cultural knowledge with stunning photography to present a new way of examining fungi. It models “ecological food search” – an approach based on caring for, preserving and deeply understanding the dynamics of the ecosystem.
