Copenhagen, Denmark Out of Print—3rd Edition due Between andNordsvamp published a comprehensive set of keys to the mushrooms of northern Europe— Nordic Macromycetes Volume 1: AscomycetesVolume 2: Polyporales, Boletales, Agaricales, Russulalesand Volume 3: Heterobasidioid, Aphyllophoroid, and Gastromycetoid Basidiomycetes. These were authored by a consortium of experts from the area fjnga included considerable detail such that the species were fairly well described.
Although there are, of course, issues with using European keys for identifying North American nogdica, these volumes have proven quite useful here, particularly in the northern U. During compilation of Nordic Macromycetes Volume 2the editors and authors realized that it fell short of covering all the species known to occur in the subject area Denmark, Faroe Islands, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden.
The first edition sold well and quickly went out of print.
Rather than simply reprint it, the editors and national coordinators decided that a revised and expanded edition should be prepared. Thus, many genus treatments were updated or substantially revised, while others remained unchanged other than to correct errors. But, more importantly, many new genera 94 by my count were added, largely runga a result of including clavarioid and gastroid members of the Agaricomycetes, reflecting current systematic thought.
Thus, the current volume corresponds to all of NM Volume 2 and a large part of Volume 3. The added coverage raised the page count from to and caused the editors to split the content into two volumes for easier handling.
Funga Nordica (2-Volume Set) [English] | NHBS Academic & Professional Books
Included are 56 families, genera, and species. The general content and organization are essentially the same as in the first edition. Front matter includes a list of the authors and their affiliations and addresses, sections on methods and presentation there are lots of abbreviations and other conventions the user needs to become familiar witha partially illustrated glossary, a description of vegetation zones and biogeographic provinces, maps of the geographic sub-areas of each of the five Nordic countries, fujga list of the abbreviations used when citing references to colored illustrations, and a discussion of the conservation status of fungi red lists and so forth, new in this edition.
A useful quick index to the nofdica genera and an overview of the taxonomic coverage are included on the back endpapers of both volumes. The bulk of the book consists of dichotomous keys plus descriptions. The first set is 10 artificial keys to genera. These are followed by a key to the nine orders covered—Hymenochaetales partialPhallales, Hysterangiales, Geastrales, Polyporales agaricoid genera onlyGloeophyllales, Russulales Auriscalpiaceae and Russulaceae onlyBoletales, and Agaricales.
The nodica of the book is organized by order, with keys to family if warranted by the size of the groupgenus, and then species. Families are arranged phylogenetically within the orders and genera are arranged alphabetically within families.
Descriptions of each of the taxa are provided. Unless you fjnga keep up with the phylogenetic literature, many of the genus names likely will be unfamiliar and many familiar species will be in different genera fnga you are used to.
Given that the rate of change in names and classifications shows no sign of slowing, one could make a case for adopting a more traditional organization in a work intended primarily for identification, so as nirdica avoid having folks learn a new system that could fuhga be subject to substantial change in the near future.
In the genus keys, the final lead for each species includes a detailed description and accessory information, giving a visual impression of massive leads that need to be digested in order to make your final dichotomous choice. But, in fact, the actual key lead extends only to the first full stop, making things much easier than they appear. Notdica rest of the entry provides a detailed description of the macro- and microscopic features, followed by up to five references to sources of colored illustrations and other descriptions.
Unfortunately, there no longer is an indication of species that are illustrated in MycoKey see below. The keys are very usable and the editors have done an excellent job of taking input from 49 authors 8 more than in the first edition and nordia a consistently formatted volume. Included with the first edition was a DVD containing a special version of MycoKeya computer-based synoptic key to over genera of macrofungi from throughout Europe, along with overmostly excellent, color photographs of approximately representative species.
The disc also included PDF files of the Funga Nordida keys, allowing one to tote them on a laptop, rather than as a 5-lb book. Unfortunately, it was not possible to include MycoKey and the PDF nordic with this edition, a major bummer.
fnuga In addition to not having access to the MycoKey images, those who have taken to using the first edition PDF files will have to return to lugging heavy hardcopies around if they upgrade to the new edition. Inasmuch as it is unlikely we will have a comparable resource available for North America any time soon, Funga Nordica should be considered an important item for the library of anyone who attempts to identify a large proportion of the mushrooms s he finds here.
Though not cheap, it provides good value. For those of you who already have the first edition, the best reason to get the second would be for the expanded coverage—principally the Phallales, Hysterangiales, Geastrales, and clavarioids.
A second would be to have a reflection of the latest taxonomic thinking. Whether those incremental benefits are worth the expense only you can decide.
