Fungi of the South-West Forests

Written and photographed by Richard Robinson

Excerpt from the Introduction

"Western Australia's South-West is known as one of the most botanically diverse regions in the world. It is particularly renowned for its wildflowers and soaring karri trees, and each year people flock to the region to see them. An even more diverse flora exists within the fungi. The jarrah and the towering karri and tingle forests are home to an amazing range of fungi, found in a variety of forms and colours.

Fungi play important roles in ecosystem functioning. They are the forest recyclers, breaking down forest litter and debris to provide nutrients for plants...The aim of Fungi of the South-West Forests is to introduce you to the world of fungi and the array of species found there. All the species featured in this book can be found along roadsides and walking tracks in the forests, woodlands and coastal communities of the South-West of WA."
