Editorial La Serrania

Book of mushrooms present in the SIerra de Grazalema


The Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park was the pioneer of the protected natural areas of Andalusia, being declared as such in 1984 years before, in 1977, it was the first of the Biosphere Reserves of the Spanish State. 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.

This book on mushrooms is intended to make known part of this enormous mycological diversity, with special emphasis on edible mushrooms and those toxic mushrooms that every amateur should know to avoid misfortune, which are described in a way that is accessible to 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 conferences that are held each year in the area, such as those of the Botanical Garden El Castillejo and Cortes de la Frontera. It also includes an advance to the catalog of fungi present in this territory. The work ends with a glossary that collects the technical words used.Title: The mushrooms of the Sierra de Grazalema Natural ParkAuthors: Manuel Becerra Parra and Estrella Robles DomínguezISBN: 978-84-96607-49-1Pages: 128 full colorFormat: 17×24 cmBinding: Paperback, with flaps
