Description
 
This guide will be of interest to anyone who wants to know about different mushroom varieties. For many Alaskans, mushrooms are a source of food. For others, they are a source of pigments for dyeing wool and other natural fibers. Still others merely enjoy their beauty. This brochure presents an introduction to mushrooms and illustrates a number of the more common and interesting of the local species to help Alaskans and visitors to better understand and enjoy Alaskas magnificent national forests. Mushrooms to most people are umbrella-shaped structures with plate-like gills on the underside of their caps. However, besides the gilled mushrooms, there are others in many shapes and sizes, and they produce their spores in a variety of ways. Other major groups include chanterelles, boletes, polypores, spine-fungi, club- and coral-fungi, puffballs, jelly-fungi, cup-fungi, morels, false morels, and elfin saddles. Color photos. This is a print on demand report.
