microscopic identification
    #1924497 - 09/17/03 09:17 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

How can I learn to identify mushrooms microscopically. I've heard the reference before but haven't been able to find the guides. I have slides, slipcovers, microscope, but not the knowledge.

An excellent book for learning it is How to Identify Mushrooms to Genus III: Microscopic Features, by David Largent, David Johnson, and Roy Watling. It's published by Mad River Press, and it has ISBN 0-916-422-09-7. It's not an expensive book.

Happy mushrooming!

I've seen some nice looking deals on eBay on microscopes. An inexpensive student microscope is very adequate. You need to make sure it has an oil immersion objective and substage condenser and light source. I'm partial to a mechanical stage, but you can do without.

Incidentally, the "How to Identify Mushrooms to Genus" series of books are all good, at least the volumes I've read. I've got volumes I - IV, and there's a lot of great information in every one of them.

Happy mushrooming!
