₦2,500.00

This book on the Ecological and Pictorial Atlas of Nigerian Mushrooms is an important book for those who may be interested in identification of the various mushroom species in Nigeria. This book also deals with some aspects of ecology of the Tropical Nigerian Mushrooms. It describes the different aspects of the morphology, size, texture, shape, colour and other unique characteristics of typical Nigerian Mushrooms.

The pictures and ecological information put together in this book is as a result of personal experiences and observations of the authors over several years of field studies including observations of seasonal variations in mushroom biodiversity. This book provides evidence of availability of different mushrooms in Nigeria that can be explored for their potential uses such as foods, food supplements, pigment sources and therapeutic uses. Some of the mushrooms are also potentially toxic while some may be used as antiviral and antimicrobial agents.

This Mushroom Atlas should be of tremendous use to students and researchers alike working in the areas of mushroom biology and general mycology. It should also be of interest to scientists and non-scientists who may be interested in the commercial production, consumption and general uses of mushroom especially in Nigeria. It is a sure guide to mushroom identification in the Tropical World.
