Flore Illustrée des Champignons d'Afrique Centrale
4 Flore Illustrée des Champignons d'Afrique Centrale
New
 
A continuation of "Flore Iconographique des Champignons du Congo" [Fasc. 1(1935)-17(1972)]. 1972-1997. 17 volumes. 32 x 24cm. Each with text signature and coloured plates. Paperback.

Flore Illustrée des Champignons d'Afrique Centrale is a fully colour-illustrated flora of the mushrooms of Central Africa. Probably the only mushroom flora of this scope for any tropical region of the world, especially owing to the high quality coloured illustrations (watercolour drawings, slides) of nearly all the species treated.

The number of species depicted, including numerous species new to science, makes this flora a basic document for mycologists and monographers dealing with tropical fungi. Only macroscopical descriptions are included.

Although this flora is published in French, from fasc. 10 (1983) onwards, the keys are translated into English and the illustrations coded, so as to make easy usage of the flora in English-speaking countries.
