L. Ryvarden, C. Decock, D. Mossebo and A. Masuka 2022: Synopsis Fungorum vol 45: Poroid fungi of Africa.
Hardcover, A4 format, 271 pages.
The book is a manual with keys and descriptions of 490 poroid fungi in 88 genera known from Africa out of which 139 are illustrated with colour pictures and black and white drawings.
Macro and microscopical characters are described and illustrated and decay and pathological significance are discussed.
The taxonomic concepts are conservative and pragmatic as the book primarily is a tool for species identification and not a phylogenetic study of African poroid fungi.
