This publication reflects the combined expertise of six mycologists on the macrofungi anyone would be likely to encounter in an oak forest.

Dr. Steve Stephenson, who has also published Edible and Poisonous Mushrooms of the World and Myxomycetes of New Zealand, is a former professor of biology at Fairmont State University.
