Fungi - Their Nature, Influence, And Uses is a comprehensive treatise on the topic of fungi, written by Mordecai Cubitt Cooke and originally published in 1888. When people think of fungi, they usually immediately think of poisonous mushrooms of harmful bacteria. Contrary to popular belief, relatively few mushrooms and fungi are actually harmful, and the beneficial properties and applications of fungi are fascinatingly varied and surprising. This thoroughly informative text outlines some of the more interesting facts about fungi, constituting the perfect book for people with an interest in the subject and a great addition to any collection of mycological texts. Mordecai Cubitt Cooke 1825 -1914,) was an English botanist and mycologist, most famous for his works: Handbook of British Fungi (1871) and Handbook of British Hepaticae, etc. (1894). Cooke founded the Society of Amateur Botanists in 1862, and received the Victoria Medal of Honour from the Royal Horticultural Society in 1902 and the Linnean from the Linnean Society of London in 1903.
