Mushrooms in the Sierra de Grazalema Natural ParkEditorial La Serrania
Book of mushrooms present in the SIerra de Grazalema
The Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park was the pioneer of Andalusias protected natural areas, having been declared as such in 1984, years before, in 1977, it was the first of Spains Biosphere Reserves . This was partly motivated by its enormous biological diversity, which has attracted numerous scientists who have studied its flora and fauna. However, its mycoflora, as rich or richer than the other taxonomic groups, has remained forgotten until recent times.
With this book of mushrooms we intend to make known part of this enormous mycological diversity with special emphasis on edible mushrooms and those toxic ones 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 mycology. The text is completed with a brief introduction to the Natural Park, mycology and the main plant formations of these mountains. In other sections the existing regulations on the activity of collecting mushrooms in this natural area, the mycological associations present in Andalusia and the mycological days that are held each year in the area, such as those of the Botanical Garden El Castillejo and Cortes de la Frontera are exposed. It also includes an advance to the catalog of fungi present in this territory. The work ends with a glossary that includes the technical words used.
