North American Boletes is the first comprehensive guide to an extraordinary and highly prized group of mushrooms known for their beautiful colors, distinctive features, relative abundance, and -edibility.

The scope of this work goes beyond the identi-fication of species. The authors consider the sym-biotic relationship boletes share with higher plants and trees, their geographical -distribution, and new information regarding the macrochemical test reactions of the boletes; they also describe several new species.

The book's unique combination of aesthetically appealing and scientifically accurate color photographs coupled with extensive descriptions makes it a standard reference work for bolete identification in North America.

More than 450 color photographs illustrating more than 300 species

Descriptions with accurate, updated nomenclature and a comments section that includes information on look-alike species and field observations
