Description:

Text French. Illustrated by the author. This work introduces readers to most of the poisonous mushrooms likely to be encountered in Europe. Some of them are very familiar: the dreadful Death cap (Amanita phalloides), responsible for about 90 percent of the fatalities resulting from mushroom consumption, the Deadly webcap (Cortinarius rubellus), livid entoloma (Entoloma sinuatum), and the world's most famous mushroom, the 'red-and-white polka-dotted' Fly Agaric (Amanita muscaria). Along with these tragic 'chart toppers', readers will discover other toxic species familiar mainly to mycologists, such as the Circular Cudonia (Cudonia circinans), the Dune Death Cap (Amanita dunensis) or the filamentous Tricholome (Tricholoma filamentosum).

Opposite each plate, readers are given a concise description of each species, along with details on its habitat and the likelihood of confusing it with other edible ones. They will also find a 'Toxicity' column (which includes the latest mycotoxicological research findings) describing in detail the associated symptoms, as well as treatments.

This is the very first work - at least in Europe - exclusively devoted to poisonous mushrooms. The ideal guide for pharmacists, it will be an equally valuable tool for the mushroom hunter. For, despite ever-expanding efforts to inform the public and prevent mishaps, the number of mushroom poisonings is not declining.
