California Toxic Fungi

Thomas J. Duffy, MD and Paul P. Vergeer (1977) ISBN: 0-918942-00-4

This pamphlet compliments other standard reference books by detailing the various types of poisoning caused by certain mushrooms. It will be of particular value to physicians who are confronted with this complex problem, because it explains clearly the symptoms and varied methods of treatment according to the type of toxin ingested. It is also a dynamic reminder to the amateur pot-hunter about the potential danger involved if he is not certain of his identification of an edible mushroom. Most of the species mentioned here also occur in others areas of the United States and Europe, and this booklet will therefore be of general value.
