Product description


Excellent book that will undoubtedly increase awareness and appreciation of myxomycetes. I recommend it highly. -- D.S.H., Mycotaxon, April-June 1995

Profusely illustrated . . . Most readable. -- Plant Talk, April 2000

The aim of this book is to introduce slime moulds to the public and this it does admirably. -- A. Feest, New Phytol, Vol 132 1996

This handbook goes a long way toward revealing the otherworldly beauty of the myxomycetes. -- HortIdeas, March 2000

This handbook should certainly stimulate interest and study of the myxomycetes. -- Vernon Ahmadjian, The Bryologist, Vol 98 1995
