0 Reviews
The threat to fungal diversity throughout the world prompts debate about whether and how fungi can be conserved. Should it be the site, or the habitat, or the host that is conserved? All of these issues are considered, but this book goes beyond mere debate by providing constructive guidance for management of nature in ways beneficial to fungi. A wide range of geographical examples are presented and equally wide-ranging solutions are put forward, providing useful suggestions about how fungi can be included in conservation projects in a range of circumstances.
