Mycological guide of the Sierra de las Nieves Natural Park



The Sierra de las Nieves Natural Park is located in the western part of the province of Malaga, in the heart of the Serrania de Ronda . Famous for its beautiful pinsapares, hides among its forests, scrub and grasslands a great diversity of species of fungi have been inventoried more than 400 different taxa , among which we can cite edible species highly coveted by mycophagous as the thistle mushroom or the cagarria, and other toxic or even deadly as the fly swatter, the Amanita pantherina or Galerina marginata.

With this mushroom book we intend to make known part of this enormous mycological wealth, with special emphasis on the edible mushrooms and those toxic mushrooms that every amateur should know to avoid misfortune, which are described in an accessible way for people who are new to the fascinating world of mushrooms.

The text is completed by several chapters on the Natural Park, mycology and the main plant formations present in this protected area. In other sections the existing regulations on the collection of mushrooms in this natural area and the mycological associations present in Andalusia are exposed. The work ends with a glossary where the technical words used in the work, the telephone numbers of interest and an approach to the mycological catalog of the Sierra de las Nieves are collected.
