Kew Pocketbooks: Fungi

In stock

Neither plants nor animals, fungi are weird and wonderful, and these extraordinary life-forms are celebrated in Kew Pocketbooks: Fungi.



Author: RBG Kew, with an introduction by Lynn Parker. 96pp. 40 colour paintings. 140 x 185 mm. Hardback, ISBN 978 1 84246 726 8, Kew Publishing 2021.

Kew Pocketbooks: Fungi reveals the weird and wonderful forms of fungi. Neither plants nor animals, and only showing themselves to us in nature through their spore-forming bodies, they are truly extraordinary. For over 6,000 years fungi have been used in food, drink and medicine. They play a vital role in the ecology of woodlands and other natural habitats.

The 40 illustrations selected from Kew’s renowned Library and Archives feature the work of Elsie Wakefield, a pioneer female scientist and talented artist. An introduction by Kew experts provides scientific insight into this unique kingdom of organisms.


Each book will feature an introductory chapter written by a Kew expert.
