When we talk about accessories or very useful tools to get started in mycology , in the knowledge of mushrooms and fungi, we immediately think of a wicker basket to look for mushrooms , or a boletus knife or a collecting backpack, but in our opinion perhaps the most important of all is a good mushroom guide or a mycology book .
Why is it so important to buy a mushroom guide?
To start this hobby of collecting boletus or chanterelles it is convenient to do it with someone who can teach us, who can accompany us in our first outings and who can guide us in our first knowledge of wild mushrooms. But at the same time we have to help each other and go researching, reading some mushroom blog and mycology forums and above all study a little new species. And the best way to do this is with a mushroom book, a mycological guide, a book of mushrooms and fungi species . We will start with a basic one, if possible a mushroom guide of our area, province or region. Why is it advisable to start with a local mushroom guide? It is very simple, because it will show us the species that we are going to be able to find in the mountains that we have nearer.
Know the edible and toxic mushrooms with a mushroom guide
The first times we go out to look for mushrooms we usually only know the niscalos , or the oyster mushrooms or the boletus edulis , but when we get to the mountain we find a large number of different mushrooms that are not these varieties. Immediately the question arises, is this mushroom edible ? and here half answers are not worth, because a mistake can be fatal. Before daring to try a mushroom we must be sure what species of mushroom it is, and to avoid fatal mistakes and poisoning by toxic mushrooms , we must be sure that it is not a toxic or deadly mushroom. This recommendation is crucial and very important. Before knowing the species of edible mushrooms, we must know the toxic mushrooms and poisonous mushrooms that we are going to find. That is where we must start our mycological knowledge. And therein lies the importance of a good mushroom guide or mycological book.
Which mushroom guide do you recommend?
If you are looking to buy a mushroom guide and do not know which one to choose, you should first think about what you are going to use it for. If you want to buy a basic mushroom book to start learning some mushroom species, then we recommend a basic mushroom guide, or a book with mushroom illustrations. They are ideal to get started in this hobby and learn to distinguish the toxic species from the edible ones. If you already have some knowledge and want to learn even more, then a expert mushroom guide is the ideal choice. They incorporate a large number of mushrooms, many more than the mycological guides for beginners and expand their descriptions and photographs.

Okay, you already have a basic mushroom guide, a more extensive mushroom book, but you want to learn even more. You are passionate about a particular species, you love russulas or boletus and you want to become an expert. Then the monographic mushroom guides are the solution.
